Geoffrey Quail - Light Vehicle Maintenance
I work at a used car garage, Ingrams in Kilmarnock, an approved dealership for SEAT cars. I got the job at Ingrams through the College, when I started a placement. I’ve been with them ever since and I’m now an apprentice, working my way through the course. I would say that the John Mather Trust awards helped me enormously. Just to get the boost of recognition for your work and receive the kit has been great. I didn’t expect that the kit I received would be so good. Without a doubt, receiving the good quality tools of the trade was a great benefit and I’ve used everything since on a regular basis. I still use them in my job now. Especially the screwdrivers, they’re expensive, and probably not something I would have bought myself straight away, so they’ve been really useful to have.
I’m continuing to work with the garage, and am taking every opportunity to progress in my career.
