Young Swindon motor technician takes podium place at Silverstone

Elliot Harris of Pebley Beach in Swindon was one of 17 technicians from across the UK to graduate from Suzuki’s well-respected Advanced Apprenticeship Programme.

Elliot collected his apprenticeship completion certificate and Level 3 advanced apprenticeship award from Denis Houston and Ian Price of Suzuki GB.

The graduation ceremony celebrated the successful completion of the practical hands-on learning initiative, which takes place over three years.

Throughout the apprenticeship, Elliot undertook block release tuition at the dedicated and state-of-the-art Suzuki training facility, whilst also enjoying support and a structured career path during his full-time employment at Pebley Beach.

Denis Houston, director of aftersales for Suzuki GB said: “We would like to congratulate all of this year’s apprentices on their fantastic achievement, a great reward for all their hard work and dedication to the programme. 

“Each of these individuals have always demonstrated a real passion for our products, as well as the desire to provide an excellent service to our customers, which are both central to the ongoing success of our brand.

“The apprentices are worthy ambassadors of Suzuki, and they will be able to apply and share the valuable learning that they have gained during their work with others, and continue to evolve in-line with the fast-paced automotive sector. We wish them the very best for the next chapter of their careers.”

Pebley Beach managing director Dominic Threlfall said: “Pebley Beach is committed to the training of young technicians and seeing them through their qualifications, from Advanced Apprenticeship Programme to Master Technician. 

“Furthermore, we believe that every motor technician should hold a nationally-recognised qualification, offering assurance of quality workmanship to members of the public. We continue to lobby Parliament to achieve this.

“Meanwhile, we’re very proud of everything Elliot has achieved, and worked so hard for.”

Financial Disclosure

Pebley Beach Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Pebley Beach Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
