Our training, your way

When James left school at sixteen, he admits he had no idea what he wanted to do as a career.  He prepared his CV and booked an appointment at his local Connections Employment Agency who helped James explore his passion for performance cars and engineering.  They introduced James to Paragon Skills who talked through his options with Automotive Apprenticeships.

“Paragon were helpful and extremely persistent!  At the time I didn’t drive and I used this as a barrier, but Paragon worked with me to plan transportation to the college and found me a garage close to my home in Wimborne to do my Apprenticeship.”

James, now aged 24 has progressed to work for Protyre in Poole as a qualified Technician and MOT tester.   His passion for performance cars continues, in his spare time he is building an MX5 Turbo project car, which he uses for track days. 

“My career goal is to set up my own garage building high performance engines.  I can’t thank Paragon enough for pushing me in the right direction, without them I would probably be stacking shelves for a living!"
