Porsche Centre Chester is providing a platform for young people in the area to become the next generation of skilled employees and our apprenticeship programme is so successful that they are winning awards. Matthew Woosey, from Ellesmere Port achieved first place in the national Porsche apprentice scheme for the last two years and Steve Donnelly, from Moreton, finished second in those same years.
Four of the seven Porsche-trained Technicians currently working at the Centre began their Porsche careers on the scheme, including Steve who qualified in late 2016. It is hoped the four will soon be joined by two more successful apprentices, with Matthew due to qualify later this year and new apprentice, Lydia Smith, currently in the first year of the three-year scheme. Our focus is always on retaining apprentices by providing a secure future, career structure and opportunities for progression. As a result, all apprentices that have trained and qualified with Porsche Centre Chester have stayed with the business.
Carl Hazelton, Centre Principal at Porsche Centre Chester, said: “It’s fantastic to see Matthew and Steve be the best of the best year on year: it clearly shows we have the right people in place to provide the very best service to all of our customers. We have some very talented young people in Cheshire and the North West, but many aren’t given the opportunity to develop a career they are good at and enjoy. Discovering the next generation of young local people to help drive a business forward should be one of the top priorities of any business. It certainly is at Porsche Centre Chester.”
*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
