Three Motor Vehicle learners at the Grimsby Institute have received special prizes, donated by Halfords, for showing commitment over the past year to their course.
IMI Level 1 Diploma in Vehicle Maintenance learners; Ethan Smith, Zeina Besson and Jake Bartlett all received a socket set, which was presented by Jon Riggs, Course Tutor for Level 1 Motor Vehicle. Jon said: “These three learners have all won a Learner of the Year Award for their excellent attendance, behaviour and attitude throughout the course.”
17-year-old Ethan said: “The tutors have really helped me to understand more about cars. I’d preferably like to run my own garage one day.”
27-year-old Zeina returned to the Institute after enjoying training here ten years ago. Zeina said: “I enjoy studying at the Institute because the tutors are all lovely and the other learners are all a scream and it’s a brilliant place to be. I hope to now become a Lecturer or a Motor Vehicle Mechanic.”
18-year-old Jake Bartlett, who is now planning to progress to Level 2 Mechanical Engineering, added: “I really enjoy coming to the Institute because I’m highly enthusiastic about cars and have been since I was young. It’s the perfect opportunity to learn more about the trade. It’s broadened my horizons to the industry and opened more doors.”
