Bosch launches apprenticeship scheme in UK

Three-year course to launch next-generation of techs

Published:  18 December, 2013

Bosch has launched a new UK Apprenticeship scheme, which it hopes will underline its commitment to skills and training in the independent automotive aftermarket.

The scheme will allow young technicians to kick-start their careers in the motor industry. The inaugural enrolment, consisting of apprentices who are employed by garages from the Bosch Car Service network, will allow apprentices to take part in an intense three-year residential apprenticeship training programme at the state-of-the-art Service Training Centre (STC) in Uxbridge, Middlesex.

Trained by Bosch's team of Master Technicians to achieve a nationally recognised level two and three VRG and VCQ qualification, each delegate will be assigned a designated technical mentor throughout their training, providing guidance and allowing them to develop their hands-on skills while taking on more advanced tasks. Throughout the course, delegates will use the latest Bosch diagnostic equipment to hone their skills across many vehicle manufacturers and vehicle systems.

Bosch apprentices will be trained to use the latest sophisticated technology and systems in the automotive aftermarket so that they can enhance a workshop's performance. The apprentices spend the majority of their time working on-site at an independent garage, gaining valuable experience, while attending scheduled training modules at the STC with each lasting a week at a time. The apprentice will stay overnight in a hotel allowing for a form of residential training which offers a safe transition from class room to workshop.
