What’s in the Apprenticeship?
Most of learning happens on the job, learning from experienced work colleagues. Apprentices use learning materials developed by Rathbone’s training partner, Jaguar Land Rover.
Apprentices learn how a vehicle works, how it’s repaired and serviced.
Apprentices learn how the industry works.
There’s some time away in the classroom; modern motor vehicles feature the very latest technology and Apprentices need to know about it.
What’s required from an Apprentice:
Rathbone emphasises employment skills so Apprentices understand they need to be smart, well presented, punctual and to behave in a professional manner to get ahead.
How long does an Apprenticeship last?
People must be able to perform the job to national standards so it depends on how fast someone learns.
If someone left school with no other experience in motor vehicles, they could achieve their Apprenticeship in around 24 months or an Advanced Apprenticeship in a further 24 months.
What qualifications can be achieved?
- A National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) in repair and servicing of road vehicles proving they’re skilled.
- A Technical Certificate that shows they have the knowledge they need.
- Practical work skills in communications, using numbers and ICT.
Apprentices will also be provided with the employment skills to work in the sector and will understand employer rights and responsibilities.
