Ferrari GB has today welcomed six apprentices into the elite ranks of the official factory trained Ferrari technicians working in the UK. The modern apprenticeship programme was launched to develop Britain’s finest technicians who will work on the world’s most prestigious sports cars.
The Ferrari Modern Apprenticeship Programme was created in 2004 to produce fully qualified technicians with specialist product knowledge for the franchised dealer network, and the first six apprentices started their training last year.
Now in their second year of training, they are being followed by a further six candidates from across the country embarking on a programme of continuous personal development, leading to a recognised IMI qualification, factory-backed training and the most interesting career in the retail motor industry.
The six trainees are employed by official Ferrari dealers and follow a programme of on-the-job and classroom training delivered by ReMIT, the foremost training provider for the retail motor industry.
‘This is a unique opportunity for the right young person who is determined to work hard and join the elite of Britain’s automotive technicians. Ferrari is committed to providing the support and guidance that will enable them to pursue a lifelong career in this fascinating industry,’ said Massimo Fedeli, Managing Director of Ferrari GB Ltd. ‘In 2004 we started the programme and the apprentices are doing well. Now is the time to bring forward the next generation of trainees and we are proud to welcome them into the prestigious world of Ferrari.’
Applicants for the modern apprentice programme must be aged between 16 and 25 years old and should visit www.remittraining.co.uk for more information.Published 26 November 2005
