Fiat has officially opened its new £1.4 million training centre in Slough which will train 6,000 delegates a year.
Part of a three-strong network of UK academies – including Manchester and Dublin – the new site is the realisation of a year-long plan by Unetversity training director Andy Rowe and his team.
Fiat Group’s Unetversity scheme operates across all the group’s brands, in all countries, worldwide. It supports the company’s global strategy to raise core competencies.
Launched in the UK in 2009, Unetversity has been restructured in the UK to offer a refreshed collection of training, leading to certification for each role.
Unetversity recently added Chrysler and Jeep to the coaching work it already does with Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Fiat Professional and Abarth.
The new Slough site has 22,000 scare feet of floor space, seven sound-insulated classrooms with Smartboard technology and workshop space with six learning centres for ‘hands-on’ experience.
Unetversity Slough was officially opened by Andrew Humberstone, managing director, Fiat Group Automobiles UK, and Alberto Trabucco, Unetversity Training academy manager.
