If you’re interested in starting a career in the motor industry, and keen to learn the skills and gain the qualifications required, then take look no further. CarShop has launched a brand new programme aimed at ambitious school and college leavers. The new programme will provide the opportunity for the next generation to gain a recognised professional or technical qualification by joining CarShop’s apprenticeship programmes.
As part of the company’s Talent Development Programme, ‘CarShop Academy’, the apprentices will be armed with the tools to succeed. There are a number of fantastic opportunities available for apprentices including Technicians, Preppers, Smart Repairers, Panel Beaters, Strip/Fitters and Contact Centre Advisors.
The brand new programme will be providing not only provides opportunities for more youngsters, but also aims to future proof talent. Going that extra mile, CarShop see that it’s important the apprentices enhance the necessary skills; and providing the apprentices with methods of enhancing employability, expanding their professional network, and increasing their confidence.
By developing their real-world skills and knowledge throughout the programme, CarShop will ensure apprentices are fully equipped to excel in a working environment. In conjunction with Learning Skills Partnership and Skillnet, apprentices will engage in classroom-based-learning at local colleges, as well as being provided with opportunities to learn alongside colleagues of CarShop.
CarShop is hoping to future-proof itself through these programmes which is part of it’s succession plan. The car retailer will also be offering opportunities to a wide range of current colleagues. Together, these programmes will help CarShop to become the employer of choice.
Later in the year, there will be further apprenticeship opportunities at each of the retail stores for Technicians in the Service Centres.
