Applications are open for the Triumph advanced apprentice programme as the premium motorcycle manufacturer prepares to take on and train the next generation of budding dealership technicians.
During the three-year course, successful apprentices will carry out a variety of tasks, from routine motorcycle maintenance to servicing and fault diagnosis, equipping them with the skills and qualifications to work as an expert technician in the motorcycle industry.
All of those chosen for the iconic British motorcycle brand’s programme will work in authorised Triumph dealerships where they will earn a salary and work alongside experienced staff, who will teach them both theoretical and practical skills. At the end of the course, participants will receive a recognised qualification in motorcycle maintenance.
In addition to full-time employment at a Triumph dealership, apprentices will attend three block training placements totalling 17 weeks over the duration of the course. These will be held at Triumph’s purpose-built training facility in Hinckley, Leicestershire.
There are 12 places available across a number of dealerships nationwide, including Webbs of Peterborough, Bridge Motorcycles in Exeter, Triumph Plymouth, Norfolk Triumph and Lings Motorcycles in Ipswich, to name a few.
Interest in the programme is always high, so the motorcycle manufacturer is urging those interested in participating to submit their applications before the 31 August deadline.
Michael Niblett, after sales manager at Triumph Motorcycles UK & Ireland, said: “This is a fantastic way to get young people into the motorcycle industry. By handing the best talent in the country over to our experienced staff, we give them a fantastic grounding in motorcycle maintenance and a foundation for a great career. We look forward to welcoming the latest intake to our dealers across the country from September 2018.”
