Renault training centre to combat skills shortage

Renault opened a £2m training centre this week to help the automotive industry fight the crippling skills shortage. The facility at Ruddington, in Nottingham, is part of Renault's commitment to developing school leavers' skills through the Modern Apprenticeship Programme.

Designed to meet the aftersales demands of the franchised dealer network, the initiative offers opportunities in servicing and repairs. Renault UK managing director Philippe Talou-Derible officially opened the centre.

Renault's Modern Apprenticeship Programme has 450 apprentices working towards a National Vocational Qualification in motor vehicle engineering or vehicle body and repair, as well as the Motor Industry Training Council's Modern Apprenticeship Certificate endorsed by the City & Guilds awarding body.

Renault will expand the scheme to Scotland this year with a dedicated training centre at Coatbridge.
