Former apprentice Jamie Shervington
Twenty-one-year-old Jamie Shervington is enjoying life as his own boss after completing a Motor Vehicle Apprenticeship.
Jamie, who is now joint owner at Motorhoist self service garage in Brierley Hill, said: “I was offered an apprenticeship by my tutor and it seemed like a no brainer because you learn better when you are actually doing something for real. By working in a fully fledged business I had to pick things up straight away.
“It was always my plan to own my own business and while I was on the programme I had an idea to open up a self service garage.
“Without learning the basics on my apprenticeship I wouldn’t be where I am now.”
