Glen’s Apprenticeship Success at Simpsons ŠKODA Great Yarmouth

Glen Davidson celebrated his graduation at Rockingham Motor Speedway with Volkswagen Group UK

Glen started at Simpsons ŠKODA Great Yarmouth in February 2010  for a 2 week trial period. At the end of his trial, we were pleased to offer Glen an apprenticeship. He has been learning on the job and attending ŠKODA training courses at the dedicated Volkswagen Group training centre in Milton Keynes.

He celebrated his graduation along with over 200 other graduates at Rockingham Motor Speedway. They spent the day experiencing simulated tyre blow-outs, roaring around the track in Lamborghini Gallardos and tackling a very muddy off road course in ŠKODA Yetis and Volkswagen Amaroks.

Glen said “I’ve really enjoyed my training; it’s better than any college programme you could do. The hardest bit of the 3 years was learning electrical measurement, trying to understand all the laws and diagrams. I feel confident doing it now, so I’ve come a long way.”

Glen’s Grandad has always had ŠKODA cars so Glen has grown up with the brand. Glen is also a keen ŠKODA driver, he started off with a ŠKODA Felicia, then a ŠKODA Fabia and has recently upgraded to a ŠKODA Fabia Monte Carlo.

Glen can officially be called an Approved Service Maintenance Technician. We are very proud of him and we will continue to support him as he builds on his knowledge and skills.
