Mercedes to open training centre within two months

Mercedes-Benz is opening a new in-house training centre in Milton Keynes, which will take over the qualifications previously handled by training company Carter and Carter.

The centre, run in conjunction with the Learning and Skills Council and Stephenson College in Coalville, will open within the next two months according to a spokesperson for the manufacturer.

Mercedes-Benz had outsourced much of its training to Carter and Carter until the company went into administration in March, but had begun setting up the new centre beforehand.

The new centre will take on all of the existing 532 apprentices, and between 90 and 150 new admissions each year.

On completion of the 40 month programme, apprentices will be given certificates by Mercedes-Benz, and all qualifications are recognised by the IMI.

To find out more where manufacturers have taken their training schemes following the collapse of Carter and Carter, see the feature in the July 11 issue of AM.
