Porsche-trained Technicians from Porsche Centre Bolton recently featured in a short film called 'Future U' aimed at young people in the North West Lancashire area.
The film was produced and funded by the National Outreach Collaboration Team based at the Media Factory at the University of Central Lancashire. It will be shown to secondary school children to highlight opportunities in further education whether at university or in work-based apprenticeships.
'Future U' showcases the ‘Top Ten jobs you’d never thought of’ and aims to show that, whilst not everyone can be top of the class academically, students can go on to have a successful, enjoyable and rewarding careers. One of the featured 'Top Ten jobs' is a service technician.
In the film our Apprentice Technician Laura McLaren and Technician Danny Parker talk about what a fantastic career being a Porsche-trained Technician is and what opportunities have been opened up to them through a work-based apprenticeship.
*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
