Over 150 applications were submitted, but it was New College Stamford student Joshua Hall who beat all other applicants to be accepted on to an Apprenticeship with World Famous Triumph Motorcycles.
The British manufacturers are internationally recognised for their 110 year commitment to developing motorcycles that are renowned for their design, character and performance. It was icons such as Steve McQueen and Marlon Brando who cemented the legend of Triump motorcycles, whilst their marks on various land speed records and race track successes highlighted the brand for world domination with bikes like the Thunderbird, Bonneville, Tiger and Trident achieving iconic status.
So when the opportunity to undertake an Apprenticeship at Triumph came up, Motorcycle student Joshua Hall jumped at the chance and was delighted to be offered a place.
It was the full time Motorcycle Maintenance and Repair course at New College Stamford which gave Joshua the firm foundations to the start of his career within the Motorbike industry. Gary Oliver Senior Leader at Triumph said, ‘’We had an overwhelming number of applicants for the apprenticeship, all of which were of an extremely high standard, but we were very pleased to be able to meet Joshua and offer him the apprenticeship. His enthusiasm and prior knowledge through his full time course certainly paid off at interview.”
The Diploma in Motorcycle Maintenance and Repair that Joshua undertook helped to secure his place on the apprenticeship at Triumph because it gave him the opportunity to develop skills in identifying and repairing engines, as well as transmission, chassis, suspension and electronic systems.
Gary McPartland, Director of Learning at New College Stamford said, ‘’We are very proud of Joshua. He’s shown how being committed to the course and working hard to develop the skills required of the industry has certainly paid off’’.
