Stefan Williams, 24 years old, was unemployed before this course started.
Stefan already has a Level 3 NVQ in motor vehicle and signed up for the electric vehicle course to enable him to expand his knowledge further and increase his chances of getting a job in the future.
The programme has enabled him to develop his existing skills and knowledge in the automotive industry and gain knowledge in the expanding sector of hybrid/electric vehicles and he is planning to carry on learning and developing his knowledge further by continuing to study at college.
Stefan said: “With the situation I was in, I wouldn’t have been able to afford to do the course, but it being free meant I could gain a qualification and better myself. And being guaranteed an interview with an industry employer at the end of the course was one of the main reasons I signed up.”
