Paragon Skills announce main sponsorship agreement for Motors by the Sea festival

As the main provider of automotive Apprenticeship training in the area, what better partnership than that of an automotive centre of excellence and a festival that focuses on everything with wheels?

This new Boscombe-based festival will take place from Friday 14th September until Sunday 16th September. An enthusiastic community around motoring, engineering and cars will celebrate ‘Motors by the Sea, giving local motoring fans a platform from which to showcase their talents, network and gain knowledge next to some very exciting displays.

We are delighted to work with Bournemouth Coastal Bid and be a part of this exciting event for the local community and motor industry. As head sponsors, we will be exhibiting at the main site on Boscombe precinct on both Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th September, in addition to holding a sub-event of Motors by the Sea at our Bournemouth Automotive Centre of Excellence and technical training centre on Ashley Road, Bournemouth on Saturday 15 June from 11 am to 4 pm.

We have been delivering Apprenticeship training for 20 years and work with many leading motor industry service providers and dealerships throughout the Dorset and Hampshire area. This will be a chance for our automotive employer partners to showcase their motors and specific areas of expertise.

Throughout the event, we will be actively engaging with people in the community to increase awareness of Apprenticeship opportunities in general, and looking to inspire a steady flow of enthusiastic young talent to join the local motor industry. It will be a great opportunity for school leavers wishing to join the automotive industry and others looking for a career change to take a tour of our workshop, find out about the Apprenticeship programmes, and meet potential employers.

In addition, the event offers a fun packed line-up including a variety of entertainment including funfair rides, attractions, motor-themed arts and crafts workshops for children and young people, music and more.

The event will kick off with a launch at the Westover Nissan dealership in Wallisdown Road, Poole, BH11 8PT on Friday 14th September, more details to follow.
