Hodgson apprentice takes European crown

Hodgson Toyota apprentice Michael Derham, has been named as Toyota’s European Apprentice of the Year, less than six months after winning the UK title.

Derham represented the UK and Newcastle-based Hodgson Toyota in Rotterdam against the best apprentice candidates from across Europe. After completing an eight-part final assessment over two days, Derham and his team were announced as the winner.

Stephen Hodgson, owner of family-owned Hodgson, said: “For Derham to win the national award was a superb feat, but this European-wide triumph is outstanding - an absolutely fantastic achievement.

Currently completing the second-year of his three-year apprenticeship with Hodgson Toyota, Derham will begin his full-time job at the north-eastern dealership this summer.
