The training you will be getting
Training is delivered in the workplace and via seven weekly college training blocks per year at S&B's specialist Automotive Academy in Bristol.
The apprentice will be assigned a workplace mentor and a S&B development coach who will offer support, advice, and guidance by monitoring progress via S&B’s purposely developed eLogbook that all parties can access any time.
Apprentices take a Gateway Assessment at the end of every year to progress until the completion of the End Point Assessment.
If an apprentice faces a daily commute to S&B’s Academy that is not viable whilst on a weekly training block, the apprentice can arrange with the employer to stay in hotel accommodation at the Hilton Garden Inn. All costs for accommodation including breakfast and a two-course evening meal are met by the employer and there will be no cost to you.
