Business Students Behind The Scenes At Finance House

Author: ACF Car Finance
Industry: Automotive

Chester-based car finance group, The Funding Corporation, opened its doors to West Cheshire College students as part of the launch of the annual ‘Outstanding Business Student Award Scheme’.

ACF Car Finance Limited, part of The Funding Corporation group of companies, has once again teamed up with West Cheshire College to develop a specific project for the Business Diploma students, to help encourage and support young talent across the region.

The students, who have been studying ACF Car Finance’s business model as part of their course, were given the rare opportunity to visit the company’s headquarters at the Chester Business Park for a ‘hands on’ day of learning.

The Funding Corporation Managing Director David Challinor welcomed the group, while other senior managers gave the future business entrepreneurs an overview of the company’s structure as well as a quiz to test their skills. The day also included an insight into the company’s new Vision and Values, unveiled in October.

The students were given the unique opportunity to ask the ACF Car Finance management team questions on the running of such a successful operation and were able to discuss the company in the context of their course syllabus.

Following the success of the first ‘Outstanding Business Student Award’ campaign in 2009, the company was excited to unveil to students this year’s plans for the award.

The students will be set the challenge of producing a Dragon’s Den-style business presentation on opening a new ACF Car Finance car dealership in the Cheshire area, with the winning team receiving £500 worth of computer vouchers.

West Cheshire College Tutor Liz Tatum said, “We’re delighted that ACF Car Finance has offered this level of support to our Level 1 Business Diploma students. The project not only offers them a valuable insight into the dynamics of such a successful business but significantly enhances their career prospects through further learning and development.”

Jane Whittle, Marketing Manager at ACF Car Finance, added: “This scheme was created to encourage and support business talent across the region and we are excited to see what this year’s students can produce.

“We are always looking to improve the way we work and what we can offer our customers and we hope that these students might inspire us.”

ACF Car Finance specialises in providing a wide range of quality used cars and arranging car credit for customers throughout the region and across the UK.
