On Thursday 13th June Steve Armstrong (lead external verifier for IMI Awards), was invited to meet HRH The Princess Royal at the site of Catch22 in Kent.

Auto22, which is part of Catch22, is a fully-equipped commercial enterprise and motor vehicle repair business. The model is one that Catch22 hope they can replicate and are actively seeking new premises.

The Princess Royal toured the Auto22 garage and met the staff, and the young people who benefit from Auto22's support and training - including six brand new Apprentices. Steve said "I have been working with Catch22 for over a year and we have recently approved them to start running Level 2 apprenticeship programmes and Entry and Level 1 qualifications."

Auto22 training programmes support Kent's young people in developing their confidence and self-esteem, securing future employment and helping contribute to their communities as a whole. They have gained support from Kent police, the probation service, Kent council education service, the high sheriff, local Lions and many Kent schools.
