Swansway Accident Repair Centre Apprentice, Damian Jurak, 19, has won the Volkswagen Group Apprentice of the Year Award and we're all very proud of this outstanding young man.

Swansway Accident Repair Centre, on Gateway, in Crewe is celebrating a big win for MET (mechanical, electrical, trim) Apprentice, Damian Jurak, 19, who’s been named Volkswagen Group Apprentice of the Year.

Damian joined Swansway from McDonalds in November, 2015 and this win proves he made the right move; proud Accident Repair Centre Manager, Mark Trevers, explained, “I’m so delighted for Damian, he’s a hard working lad who really deserves this award and it’s to his absolute credit that all his hard work has paid off”.

The competition takes place across the whole Volkswagen UK network, starting with 500 apprentices; they’re then whittled down to twenty-four. Candidates have to sit written exams and undertake practical tests and at the end of it all, Damian was announced as the winner.

Damian explained, "For the final I went down to Babcock in Milton Keynes, did my practical test and finally was announced as the winner! I want to say a massive thank you to everyone at the Accident Repair Centre, but I really want to thank Sean Thomson, he's been my mentor and taught me so much".

"It's been quite a week for me as I've also just completed my Apprenticeship", added Damian.
