Available Car revs up for new apprenticeship programme with Remit!

September 4, 2017


Car supermarket giant, Available Car, has joined forces with national training provider, Remit Group, to deliver its UK wide apprenticeship scheme.

The partnership has been forged this summer and will see Remit assist with the company’s future apprentices.

Available Car will be working with Light Vehicle Technician apprentices, as well as Vehicle Body Repair and Paint, and office-based programmes, such as Business Administration.

Apprentices have been working with Available Car since 2006. Russell Needham, Group Preparation Manager at Available Car, said: “We’ve always valued the contribution apprentices make to our business. It’s not just an opportunity for an individual to gain employment, training and career prospects, it’s also a chance for us develop our workforce.

“Bringing a young person into the business and training them from scratch, allows us to develop a member of the team with the necessary qualifications and skills, while also meeting the Available Car standards. And it doesn’t end there for our apprentices. We’re committed to developing our employees into managers of the future, and this development starts from day one.”

Remit will now be assisting with the training of Available Car’s future apprentices, ensuring they get the best support as they go through their training programmes, as well as working in partnership with Available Car to exceed the expectations of an apprenticeship, reaching their own tailored standards.

Christine Peddie, Automotive Business Unit Director at Remit, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Available Car on its latest apprenticeship programme.

“We have over 20 years experience working in the automotive sector and we’re dedicated to making sure the training and qualifications our apprentices achieve not only work for the individual, but their employer and the industry as a whole.”

Remit will begin work with 17 apprentices through the scheme, a programme which is expected to continue to grow over the coming months and years.
