Successfully completing the Apprenticeship has also resulted in achieving additional qualifications including a Level 2 Diploma in Vehicle Parts Principles and a Level 3 Diploma in Vehicle Parts Competence.

Ryan said: “The Apprenticeship programme is a great option for youngsters who are given the opportunity to gain practical hands-on experience in a working environment, as well as working towards achieving nationally recognised qualifications and earning a wage at the same time – it’s great.

“I am delighted to have secured full-time employment at the end of my Apprenticeship and looking forward to a long and successful career with Jennings Ford.”

As a fully-fledged parts advisor, Ryan will assist with stock control, complete orders, liaise with workshop and bodyshop staff, as well as taking telephone enquiries at the Teesside dealership.

Andrew Cave, parts manager at the Jennings Ford branch in Stockton, said: “As a company, we are committed to the Apprenticeship programme, with many youngsters having already been given opportunities across a variety of departments, such as parts, sales, service, bodyshop, accounts and IT.

“We are delighted to welcome Ryan to the team.  He is an enthusiastic and quick to learn individual.  Throughout the three years he has been with the company, he has proved to be an asset to the parts department at Stockton.”

After leaving Outwood Academy, formerly known as Oakfield Community College, in Middlesbrough with a number of GCSEs under his belt, Ryan went on to study motor vehicle mechanics at Middlesbrough College, prior to embarking on the Apprenticeship programme at Jennings Ford.

In addition to providing a range of aftersales facilities, including parts, service, MOT and accident repair, the Stockton-based dealership also sells the entire range of new Ford models, as well as a variety of quality used cars.

Jennings Ford operates dealerships at Stockton and Middlesbrough in Teesside, in addition to a branch located in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear.
