Land Rover National Apprentice of the Year 2009
Thu, 01 October 2009
A Gala Evening at Wroxall Abbey Warwick came to a climax when Tameside College’s Scott Moss received the accolade of Land Rover’s National Apprentice of the Year. The title and a substantial tool kit were presented to him by TV motoring journalist Quentin Wilson who hosted the evening.
Scott’s journey started when he joined the Land Rover Programme when still in year 10 at Copley High School and along with his normal studies worked hard on a day release programme at College, in that year Scott was chosen from thirty six students to represent the College as our Apprentice of the year. Scotts determination and hard work continued into year 11, he was placed at Stratstones Jaguar, Manchester to gain work experience, where he impressed co-workers and management, so much so he secured a full-time job with this prestigious company and a full apprenticeship with Land Rover/Jaguar.
Hoping to follow in Scott’s foot steps, Morgan Ferrans, Tameside’s first year nominee was presented with an award at the same ceremony. On the evening both young men conducted themselves as true ambassadors of the College. Good luck to these two well deserving young men.
