FORMER apprentices from a Coventry engineering company will see their achievements recognised next week when they are be awarded the Freedom of the City.

The 19 Dunlop Aerospace Braking Systems apprentices will be made Freemen of the City in a ceremony at the Council House next Tuesday.

David Johnson, company managing director, said the award was in recognition of their hard work and dedication.

He added: "We are proud of our apprentice programme and the hundreds of talented individuals who have passed through the scheme.

"We see training as crucial to encouraging young people to enter the engineering industry.

"This special ceremony is to honour the achievement of 19 former apprentices.

"Some of these new Freemen have just completed their training, while one spent his career with us before recently retiring."
