In choosing a training provider it was important to find a partner who had the same passion for the delivery of the automotive apprenticeship standards and who is able to be flexible and adaptable in their approach. Bridgwater & Taunton College have demonstrated they value our business and fully understand our needs adapting and developing programmes that support company requirements

He added:

It was important to choose a training provider with an excellent quality track record and state-of-the-art facilities capable of meeting the standards of current industry practice. Bridgwater & Taunton College provision has a reputation for ‘outstanding’ delivery and provides a great all-round experience for the Motofix team

Motofix has a great track record of apprenticeships in the organisation and one that aligns to Bridgwater & Taunton College. They, like the college, have senior members of staff who progressed through apprenticeships themselves and truly understand the value in investing in their people, giving young people a chance and growing their own talent. Alongside their apprenticeship, spanning across their organisation, they also support trainees, work experience opportunities with schools and assist more recently supporting placing apprentices who have lost their jobs in some case due to Covid-19.

One reason why your business loves apprenticeships? 

Apprentices are the future of our industry and employing them provides the means to mould them into technicians meeting the needs of the business.
