Apprentice Sean really motoring

A young motor enthusiast has embarked on an exclusive three-year training programme with the aim of becoming the best in the business.

Seventeen-year-old Sean Rose, above, from Coltishall, near Wroxham, has been accepted by Norwich's Volkswagen van retailer Robinsons Van Centre as the latest recruit on the technician apprenticeship scheme.

Over the next three years Robinsons Van Centre, in Heigham Street, will invest nearly �40,000 to train him to technician status.

The dedicated apprentice successfully completed a motor mechanics course at City College Norwich which increased his automotive knowledge and employment opportunities and now he is looking forward to achieving his ambition of working in the motor industry.

Sean said: 'I am very pleased to have secured my apprenticeship and grateful to Robinsons Van Centre for giving me this chance.
