Suzuki GB has hosted a ceremony at Rockingham Motor Speedway for 25 graduates from its Advanced Apprenticeship Programme (AAP).
The annual event celebrates the successful completion of the practical hands-on learning initiative which takes place over three years for automobile and motorcycle technicians, and 24 months for aftersales service and parts advisors.
Throughout the apprenticeship, participants undertake block release tuition at the Suzuki training facility, whilst also enjoying support and a structured career path during their full-time employment at one of the company’s dealers in the UK.
The 19 students who were able to attend the ceremony came from the length and breadth of the country and collected their apprenticeship completion certificate and NVQ/VCQ Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship Award from Nobuo Suyama, managing director, Dale Wyatt, director of automobile and Denis Houston, director of aftersales at Suzuki GB.
Houston said: “We would like to congratulate all of this year’s apprentices on their fantastic achievement, a great reward for all their hard work and dedication to the programme.
“Each of these individuals have always demonstrated a real passion for our products, as well as the desire to provide an excellent service to our customers, which are both central to the ongoing success of our brand.
“The apprentices are worthy ambassadors of Suzuki, and they will be able to apply and share the valuable learning that they have gained during their work with others, and continue to evolve in-line with the fast-paced automotive sector. We wish them the very best for the next chapter of their careers.”
