Kwik Fit | Friday 24th October 2014 4:00pm
We were over the moon this week to learn that Kwik Fit trainee and former apprentice Charles Rogers has been announced as the winner of the Fast Fit category at the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) Outstanding Achievers Awards.
The Awards, which were suitably held at the Heritage Motor Centre in Warwickshire, celebrate young talent including students and apprentices who have demonstrated exceptional dedication and aptitude in each sector of the motor industry. Charlie received his award from IMI Group patron, His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent who described the winners as “future leaders and current role models in the sector”.
Charlie, who was nominated for the awards by Kwik Fit apprentice programme manager Nick Bilton, was selected from over 120,000 IMI Qualification learners and 30,000 IMI accreditation holders as one of this year’s nine winners.
Charlie joined the Kwik Fit apprenticeship programme back in August 2012 and began his training at our Christchurch centre. From the outset, Charlie demonstrated the enthusiasm and determination to succeed, and took control of his own progress. As a result, Charlie completed the apprenticeship framework six months early. Keen to progress further and now based at our Ringwood Road centre in Bournemouth, Charlie often shadows our Master Technician, Nick Cutler, recording in detail the work completed in anticipation of joining our advanced Level 3 Diagnostic Technician programme later this year.
