Apprenticeships aa


Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes designed around the needs of both apprentices and employers and lead to nationally recognised qualifications.

Apprenticeships benefit everyone involved, particularly in challenging economic times. Apprentices get valuable on-the-job training, employers get engaged and loyal staff and customers get professionally maintained bikes. Better yet apprenticeships can be completed while you gain experience in the work place and training costs involved with apprenticeships are heavily subsidised by the Government (if the employer doesn't pay into the apprenticeship levy).
