Lynn’s College of West Anglia’s motor vehicle student of the year Level 3 student Michael Halse has been presented with a gift which will help him in his future career.

Local hardware suppliers AT Johnson have awarded him a Teng Tools socket set in recognition of his achievement.

AT Johnson’s tool and hardware stores, based in Downham and Lynn, have been providing prizes for the student of the month throughout this academic year as part of a new relationship with the technology departments at the college formed last year.

For the final presentation of the academic year, Brian Melton, of AT Johnson, presented the socket set to Michael as the overall Lynn campus motor vehicle student of the year.

David Fannan, course director for Level 3 motor vehicle, said: “It’s wonderful that AT Johnson are able to sponsor the prizes for the students of the month and the socket set is a really worthwhile gift that the students will be able to go on and use when they go in to work.”

Howard Burton, stores manager of AT Johnson, said: “The relationship we have forged with the college is of mutual benefit. We have been able to invite several of our suppliers – including Mahle and Federal Mogul – to deliver technical seminars and demonstrations for the students so we know that they are able to keep completely up to date with the latest car technologies before entering the workplace.

“From our point of view these are the customers of the future so we give all college motor vehicle students a discount card to use with us. We look forward to continuing this relationship into the next academic year and hopefully we will continue to see it go from strength to strength.”
