James Worthington, Managing Director of Telford firm MyWorkwear, was in Bridgnorth this week to collect his renovated Jaguar XK8 from Classic Motor Cars Ltd.
However, this was not just any normal car collection; it is part of an unofficial Shropshire network, where companies are working together to support the next generation of engineering talent, as well as one another through recommendations.
The local entrepreneur had been supplying personalised workwear to In-Comm Training’s three academies and supporting it with a number of STEM-related projects, including the University of Wolverhampton’s race team.
It was during this relationship that he found out about a new Heritage Engineering Technician apprenticeship being offered at In-Comm’s Marches Centre of Manufacturing & Technology (MCMT) facility in Bridgnorth in partnership with nearby Classic Motor Cars Ltd.
This three-year course combines classroom teaching and on-the-job training to equip apprentices with the skills and knowledge they need to restore classic cars, vintage racing and commercial vehicles.
“I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the relationship between MyWorkwear, In-Comm Training and Classic Motor Cars than the Heritage Engineering apprentices bringing my Jaguar XK8 back to life,” explained James.
