An engineering student has secured an apprenticeship with one of Britain’s most famous motorbike manufacturers.

Joshua Hall, who studied for a diploma in motorcycle maintenance and repair at New College Stamford, was chosen from more than 150 applicants to work for Triumph Motorcycles.

Senior leader at Triumph Gary Oliver was impressed with Joshua’s skills. He 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.”

Business studies students from the college were also given the chance to present ideas including a dog crèche and diamanté-studded horse equipment, in front of a Dragons’ Den-style panel in the boardroom at Cummins Generator Technologies.
