A team of apprentices are on the right road to a successful career after their college teamed up with a car dealership.

Hartlepool College of Further Education has linked up with Drive Vauxhall in Burn Road so Level 3 Automotive Diploma students can learn more about the industry.

Drive Vauxhall general manager Joe Palmer was approached by lecturer Tony Jowett.

Tony said: “I was delighted that Drive Vauxhall agreed to help our learners through their programmes of study and to reconnect once again with the Vauxhall brand.”

Mr Palmer said he was “only too happy to help Tony find work experience for his students”.
