Recently, Porsche Centre Teesside hosted an educational visit for students studying motor vehicle courses at East Durham College.
The afternoon was organised by College Lecturer Michael Salmon and was led by Porsche Centre Teesside’s Aftersales Manager Tim Copeland.
When the students arrived at the Centre, Tim conducted a presentation in the boardroom, giving students a glimpse into everyday life within the motor industry and showing examples of varying roles and tasks undertaken here at our Porsche Centre.
Tim also spoke about how he worked his way to his current position as Aftersales Manager and gave advice and guidance for their future CVs.
The students concluded their afternoon with a full tour of our Centre, exploring the current range of Porsche models like the Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo and the new Macan. Students then had the opportunity to chat with our Porsche-trained Technicians in the workshop.
All the team here at Porsche Centre Teesside would like to thank the students of East Durham College for visiting our Centre and wish them all the very best with their future studies and careers.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. 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. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel 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. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
