Duncan Barr (18), David Best (19), Mitsubishi’s first female apprentice Laura Underwood (16), Martin Clarke (17), Lee Clayson (17), Craig Close (19), Ross Crokcett (16), Adam Denby (16), Sam Lyons (17) and Richie McCune (19) will complete a combination of ‘on the job’ training and residential courses based from Mitsubishi’s head office in Gloucestershire.
Around 120 students from across the UK have already successfully completed the programme since its creation in 2000.
The four-year curriculum is split, with four two-week blocks of residential training taking place annually during the first three-years, followed by the fourth and final year based completely at the dealership.
On completion of the Mitsubishi Advanced Modern Apprenticeship students will have attained their BTEC National Certificate, NVQ3 qualification and Keyskills. In addition all apprentices complete three additional courses in four-wheel alignment, air conditioning and alarm fitting for which they become Thatcham certified as part of their basic qualification.
