VW apprentice climbs to the top!

AW Repair Group’s Volkswagen Paint and Body apprentice James Hill was in Penrith, Wales, last week with 60 other Volkswagen apprentices from across the country to improve their team skills.

Their week team building consisted of climbing Helvellyn, a 950m mountain that is the 3rd highest fell in the heart of the Lake District (picture below), orienteering, raft building in the local area and Cheese press caving (squeezing between two rocks in a cave!).

There were 5 teams of paint and body, MET and mechanical apprentices on the event who, at the end of the week, had to present to the Manager the skills they had gathered on the experience along with how they had bonded as a team.

James (19) who is a year two apprentice from Sleaford, Lincolnshire, said: “It was an eye opening experience, especially the cheese press caving, but we worked together well as a team. This was also demonstrated when we built our raft, we only got slightly wet!”

Our Volkswagen paint apprentice will be taking part next year, something he is already looking forward to… we will keep you updated!
