The Modern Apprenticeship Programmes allow apprentices to work full time and have the opportunity to earn while they learn and to put theory into practice within an automotive training environment.

Apprentices will gain experience in all operating systems within their own parts department and will have the opportunity to put the theory learnt on the course into practice within their own facility. Customer facing and parts identification units will be undertaken, ensuring apprentices will be able to meet and exceed their organisation's customer expectations.
