Camberley Auto Factors has announced the winners of year’s Basingstoke College of Technology Automotive Young Apprenticeship awards.

The annual awards ceremony took place at a Basingstoke Volkswagen Salesroom.

As the main sponsor for this year’s event, Camberley supplied all of the seven prizes awarded on the night.

The accolades included:

  • Best Practical Student
  • Most Improved Student
  • Best Theory Student

The most coveted award, ‘Student of the Year Young Apprentice in Automotive Skills’, was won by Dominic Duell, a Year 11 student from Testbourne Community College.

Judges said his performance had been “outstanding” over the two years of the Young Apprentice programme.

Robert Gibbs, Camberley Auto Factors’ head of marketing, said: “Our Basingstoke branch allows our teams to work closely with the students of the future.”

Gibbs said that in addition to sponsoring the college’s automotive awards, the motor factor also offers tuition and on-site experience.

He added: “We hope to be a long-term relationship with [students] whilst they are still at school, so they are prepared and know the contacts they require when they graduate and begin their trade within the trade.”
