• Studied: Motor Vehicle Apprenticeship
I really enjoyed my work placement with Bowker and knew right away that I wanted to work for them. I met every week with my mentor in College and she also came to see me at work to talk about how things were going and to remind me that this was my opportunity to show what I could do and that I was keen and reliable. Thank you to Blackburn College and the Moving On project for the opportunity and the support.

Jonathan had completed Level 3 in Motor Vehicle but was not sure that he wanted a career as a Motor Mechanic and was unsure of what to do next.  He joined the Moving On Project with the main aim of gaining confidence and improving his employability skills, developing his CV and to help him to decide on the career path that he would like to take.

Jonathan was friendly and polite from day one, attended every lesson and completed all the work set for him.

Not only did he achieve all the above targets at Blackburn College, he completed a 6 week work placement at Bowker BMW in Blackburn, and impressed them with his positive attitude and hard work ethic. He was offered an apprenticeship and is now working for a fantastic company and is making excellent progress.

Jonathan said that he is ‘over the moon’ by this outcome, and is really glad he chose the Moving On Project, to support him achieve his goals.
