A young car enthusiast from Aberdeen has embarked on a three-year training course with the aim of becoming the best in the business.
Sixteen-year-old Nathan Horne has been accepted by Volkswagen car retailer, Specialist Cars in Aberdeen to be the latest recruit on the company’s parts apprenticeship scheme.
Over the next three years Specialist Cars will invest nearly £40,000 to train Nathan to become a parts advisor.
Nathan started after finishing his GCSE’s at Harlaw Academy in Aberdeen. His ambition to work in the automotive industry was evident in his interview which secured him the apprenticeship.
Nathan said: “I love all types of vehicles and this is my dream job. I am passionate about the Volkswagen brand and I want to go as far in my career as I can.
“I am over the moon to be given this opportunity and very grateful to Specialist Cars for giving me this chance.
“I am determined to show everyone how much this apprenticeship means to me.”
Specialist Cars’ aftersales manager, Scott Brunton, said: “Nathan’s enthusiasm was one of the main reasons why he secured this place on the apprenticeship programme.
“We are confident he will come through the three years with flying colours.”
