Youngsters discover the road to success

BT Fleet technicianYoung people have been getting under the bonnet of the fleet industry at a special educational open day

Fleet Solutions invited several Year 10 pupils from George Dixon Academy in Birmingham to their Hockley garage to give them an insight into what life is like at the business. Head of Garage Strategic Development Carol Baxter worked closely with the local authority and the Department of Work and Pensions to organise the event, where the children experienced a day in the life of a motor vehicle technician. Carol said: “The young people really enjoyed the hands on experience they received in the garage, understanding the role of our technicians. We also gave them information about our apprenticeship and graduate schemes, explaining how we’re nurturing the next generation of Fleet Solutions. “We’re going to organise similar visits such as this across the country, showing pupils the fantastic career opportunities that exist in BT, so that’s something we’re all very excited about."
