By Abigail Hunt

An 18-year-old has received the coveted Apprentice of the Year award as part of the Body Repair Industry Apprentice Awards (BRIAA'S).

Josh Graham won the title for his work at AW Accident Repair Centres at Newark's Brunel Drive industrial estate where he has been been an apprentice.

Following the multi-skilled accident repair apprenticeship programme since November 2017, Josh was among 20 young people training on the job and at Emtec College in Nottingham.

The apprenticeship academy has grown significantly over the past two years with the training scheme hiring other apprentices across their network of eight bodyshops across the East Midlands.

Ian Pearson, training academy manager, praised Josh for his work over the years.

He said: "Josh has excelled in all areas asked of him and the title is truly deserved, we’re very proud to have him as part of the team."

The multi-skilled accident repair technician apprenticeship covers all aspects of vehicle body repair, mechanical, electrical and trim (MET) and panel and paint work.

The apprenticeship lasts for 24 months and is a great way to get your foot in the door of the body repair industry.
