Vehicle Body & Paint

Our Vehicle Body & Paint Apprenticeship is designed to meet the skill needs of employers by attracting new talent and/or helping to up skill your existing workforce. The Apprenticeship aim is to provide apprentices with the skills, knowledge and experience needed to undertake relevant tasks to their job role.

The Intermediate Apprenticeship will train apprentices as technicians repairing and restoring body and paintwork. They will learn both on and off the job how to recognise the various materials used on vehicles and the preparation that is needed to be undertaken before applying the paints and finishes.

Not only do Apprenticeships offer people the chance to kick-start a fulfilling career, there are a wealth of benefits for businesses.

Offering an Apprenticeship to a new or existing member of staff gives businesses the chance to play an active role in moulding their future workforce and creating the future skills that they need to help their businesses grow. Providing these opportunities builds strong employee loyalty as well as maintaining highly skilled staff.
