A second wave of Retail Motor Industry Training (ReMIT) apprentices are setting a hot pace in their careers by joining the prestigious ranks of Ferrari, under the Ferrari Modern Apprenticeship scheme.
They will follow a programme of ‘on the job’ and classroom training delivered by ReMIT - the training arm of the Retail Motor Industry Federation (RMIF) - at its Centre for Technical Excellence in Croydon.
‘I would like to congratulate these six young learners who have already demonstrated a high level of talent and commitment to a future in motor vehicle repair,’ said ReMIT managing director Stephen Ramsay. ‘They are ReMIT’s second wave of candidates working with Ferrari, and are setting a fantastic example to those thinking of joining an exciting, fast-paced industry.
‘Competition for these coveted Ferrari positions was ferocious: these young people are therefore a credit to themselves and, I am sure, will be to their future employers.’
He added: ‘Apprenticeships are good for young people, and good for the businesses that take them on. The apprentice develops skills and abilities that will last a lifetime, and the business gets to train a member of staff in the way they want, while at the same time see that young person make a real and important contribution. Everybody wins!’
The Ferrari Modern Apprenticeship Scheme was created in 2004 to produce fully qualified technicians with specialist product knowledge for the franchised dealer network.Published 14 December 2005
