BMW’s in-house training centre, the Centre for Development (CfD) in Bracknell, Berkshire, has won a prestigious government-backed National Training Award.
The National Training Awards are the UK's premier accolade for businesses, organisations and individuals who have achieved lasting excellence and success through training and learning. The award was given to BMW’s CfD because of the breadth and depth of courses offered that further personal development as well as the development of the company.
News of the NTA award comes at the same time as BMW Motorrad UK has teamed up with Hull College to launch its first ever motorcycle apprenticeship scheme. Trainees at the college will now be able to take part in the BMW Career Programme Motorcycle Apprenticeship scheme with a view to becoming the BMW technicians of the future.
Utilising the college’s new £4.7 million Cannon Street Motor Vehicle Centre, trainees will spend up to two years training at the college while also getting further hands-on experience at their sponsoring dealership.Published 13 December 2005
