Body repairs champion

Elizabeth Hodgson was top of the podium at the home of British motorsport, Silverstone, as she was crowned body repair student of the year.

The 21-year-old, who studies level three body repair at Hull College, was presented with her award at the ceremony organised by the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) to recognise her progression, enthusiasm, achievement and motivation throughout her course.

Elizabeth was one of 14 winners chosen from more than 120,000 IMI learners, 30,000 IMI accreditation holders, and management professionals from across the motor industry.

Elizabeth said: “It is an amazing feeling to win and I am still getting to grips with the fact that I have been named as the best student in body repair from across the UK.

“I certainly couldn’t have achieved this without the amazing help Hull College gave me throughout my course. Big thank you to my course leader David Paine and fellow tutors Paul Wisker and Paul Wiles.”
