“I love cars so being involved with an approved Ferrari dealership is a dream,” said 26-year-old Courtney, speaking during National Apprenticeship Week.
“My manager recommended I start the apprenticeship programme with Realise and it’s been really helpful. It should definitely allow me to kick on with my career.
“We have already looked at project management finance, self-awareness and leadership skills and soon we’ll be studying building relationships, operational management, communication and problem solving.
“The learning has been very enjoyable and my mentors have been fantastic.”
Courtney began working life in the motor trade and subsequently returned to the industry following a brief stint as an estate agent.
“I didn’t enjoy working as an estate agent,” said Courtney. “It wasn’t for me and I soon realised I wanted to be back in the motor industry where I had previously spent six years. It’s what I know.”
