We have two advanced apprenticeships to offer starting in August 2014.
These are four year study programmes with block release at college working towards NVQ 3. Starting with a multi-skilled approach over the first two years, in the third year you will specialise in your chosen field. You will spend the fourth year in house continuing to develop your knowledge.
In your first year your annual pay will be around £13,250 – that’s around £250 per week. This increases every year as you progress through your apprenticeship and will double once you have qualified. We also offer driving tuition and free bus travel as part of the package.
You will need to have passes (or predicted passes) at GSCE maths, English and ICT.
This is a fantastic opportunity for someone with a good mathematical brain who enjoys problem solving - working with vehicle electronics is definitely for the techie. You’ll use the latest diagnostic techniques and computerised tools to understand and fix faults on our hybrid, diesel and gas powered buses. You will be studying towards a technical qualification in auto-electrical maintenance and repair specialising in passenger transport engineering.
Vehicle Parts Technician
This is an exciting role for a person with excellent IT skills, and who loves organising and controlling things. You’ll be someone who likes to get a job done and have a practical background. You will be working with computerised databases, vehicle components and managing a budget. This is the job for you if you enjoy working with people, if you like being hands-on and are equally happy in an office environment. You will be working towards an NVQ in business studies specialising in parts supply operations.
