A Halifax garage which has proved to be a real driving force for apprenticeships in West Yorkshire has received a special award from Rathbone Training during National Apprenticeship Week.

Pellon Tyre and Auto Centre has received the National Apprenticeship Week Employer award for engaging six young people in apprenticeship training and employment through their Level 2 and 3 qualifications, each apprentice has developed into valued members of the workforce.

“The company recognises that the life blood of the business lies with the people that work within it and to ensure they deliver the best to their customers, they have to be the best,” said Adrian Milner, Motor Vehicle Tutor for Rathbone Training.

"I have worked with Pellon for several years and the relationship with Rathbone Training has secured dedicated staff for the business that have all benefited from progressive training. Our work with them has also allowed the company to continue to develop and gain a good return on investment.”
