Last night, on 11 October 2018, Aspire in Leeds hosted the Yorkshire and the Humber regional Prince’s Trust and TK Maxx & Homesense Awards.
It is with great pleasure that one of our colleagues – Patrick Wall was announced the winner of the HSBC UK Breakthrough Award.
The Breakthrough Award recognises outstanding progress of young people who have overcome tough challenges to develop new skills in order to reach their potential.
Patrick first joined our Porsche Centre Leeds through the Prince’s Trust on a 12-week training programme. After this, Partrick joined the sales team at Porsche Leeds, carrying out vehicle diagnostic checks and preparing the cars for sale. He now has a place on a three-year apprenticeship scheme, again at Porsche Leeds.
Patrick commented on his JCT600 journey so far, and how thankful he is for The Prince’s Trust help: “The Prince's Trust found an amazing 12-week training programme for me at JCT600 Porsche that was paid for by another training organisation. I was literally speechless when they told me!"
"I now work in the sales department…Better still; I’ve got a place on a three-year apprenticeship with Porsche. I can’t thank The Trust enough for what they’ve done for me!"
Head of Business, Simon Filer at Porsche Centre Leeds commented: “This is a great achievement and is testament to how Patrick has approached his time with JCT600 and Porsche Leeds. Great job Patrick and very well done, everyone is very proud of you.”
Congratulations Patrick, from all at JCT600.
