Luc Dumas, from Toulouse, has been the latest French student to attend the Featherbed Lane dealership working in the service department alongside the other technicians. Luc is in the first year as an apprentice mechanic at the SGAMI Sud-Ouest in Toulouse.
It is a 3 year course and each year Luc will get the opportunity to work for two weeks in another country under the Erasmus Scheme. Students from the North Shropshire College Walford Campus made the return journey to Toulouse via the ESM College that Luc attends, taking placements in local garages.
Luc thoroughly enjoyed his stay saying: “It has been a great experience. The atmosphere was very good and the team made me very welcome. They are a friendly group and easy to work with.”
Simon Onions, workshop controller was delighted with the efforts Luc had put in. “I would offer him a job if he was staying here. He has been an excellent addition to the team.”
