Cannon Slade 1

Porsche Centre Bolton at school careers event


Recently Porsche Centre Bolton was delighted to attend Canon Slade school's annual careers evening where, of the 50 employers representing various companies, we were the only business from the motor industry.

Steve Webb, Centre Principal and Adam Calvert, Parts Manager, spoke to students and their parents about the wide array of careers in the motor trade, including those in accountancy, HR, IT, media and legal. A lot of students were also interested in designing and building cars, so they spoke about possible routes into such roles including apprenticeships, college courses and further education.

Our Taycanon (named after Taycan and Canon Slade) project car was unveiled to much excitement. In partnership with GreenPower, this electric vehicle will be built and developed by the school and, once finished, will be raced on the track against other schools, colleges and universities. The aim of the project is to promote and influence students to consider a STEM (Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) career.

The project is already having a positive impact: over 200 students applied to be part of the team and the school is now going through interview stages to create their winning team.
