A HARWICH apprentice is celebrating after graduating from his three-year training programme at motor manufacturer Bentley.

Alex Baxter, one of six apprentices across Britain to graduate from the Bentley Apprenticeship Programme, has secured a permanent position at Colchester-based dealership Bentley Essex.

The 19-year-old was one of the first group of apprentices to join the luxury car marque's dedicated training scheme.

He impressed course leaders with his skills and enthusiasm and played an integral role in the aftersales team at the dealership.

He was also involved in the relocation of the aftersales facilities at Bentley Essex to a dedicated, purpose-built site in Phoenix Square, off Wyncolls Road, in August last year.

Aftersales manager Allen Brooks said: “Alex plays an integral role in the aftersales team at the dealership where we expect the highest levels of service for customers and we are delighted that he has completed his training giving him the skills and knowledge required to carry out repairs and improvements to Bentley models.”
