East Durham College student Sean Mercer recently won the Motor Vehicle Maintenance Award at the College’s November Student Awards ceremony.

Sean, aged 17 from Seaham, is studying on a Light Vehicle Maintenance and Repair Principles Diploma course.

Motor lecturer Derek Clough said: “Sean has proved himself to be a big team player and is always willing to help out his peers in the workshop environment, giving instructions to others on tasks he is already competent in.”

Sean, who had not settled on a previous course at the College, was given a chance by Derek to show he could settle down and commit to a course at the College.

Derek added: “There had been some issues on the last course but the young lad has really turned a corner. He has given his all so far this year and tries very, very hard in all aspects of the work. He has behaved really well, so well done on this award.”
