An Emtec Colleges Limited (ECL) employee has become one of only three people to date to be presented with an Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) award for outstanding practice. Stephen Turner, Sector Development Manager (Automotive), has received the Certificate of Recognition as an Advanced Automotive Assessor Professional (AdAAP).
Emtec Colleges Limited is part of Central College Nottingham, and focuses on training and upskilling in the automotive industry and Apprenticeships.
Stephen has many years’ experience of assessing and internal verification in the motor industry. He is currently working on international projects involving the introduction and development of IMI standards in other countries. He received the award as a result of his extensive high-quality work supporting IMI assessment and verification processes in China and Chinese colleges.
IMI CPD Programme Manager Adrian Lawson who assessed the evidence provided by Stephen said his work
“is an excellent example of best practice in an advanced assessor role”.
Andy Moore, Managing Director for ECL said:
“Stephen has been mentoring and supporting all of our Chinese assessors, to enable them to deliver a robust assessment process in our Chinese IMI project. I’m delighted that his skills and professional expertise have been recognised officially by the IMI with this new title of AdAAP in addition to his existing Advanced Automotive Engineer (AAE) status.”
