Fiat's all new training centre - Unetversity Slough - has now officially been opened by Andrew Humberstone, managing director, Fiat Group Automobiles UK, and Alberto Trabucco, Unetversity Training Academy Manager.

Fiat Group's Unetversity scheme operates across all brands from the Group and in all countries worldwide, supporting the company's global strategy which is to raise core competencies.

Unetversity was launched in the UK in 2009 and covers a range of high tech training which leads to certification for each role, including a wide range of web-based learning, with nearly 100 individual modules and registering 5000 completions in 2010. Unetversity has been recognised as a training centre of excellent and recently added Chrysler and Jeep to the coaching work it already does with Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Fiat Professional and Abarth.

The new Slough site boasts 22,000 sqaure feet of floor space with a light and airy environment with seven sound-insulated classrooms each of which is fitted with 'Smartboard' technology. The groundfloor's workshop features six learning centres for delegates to get a more hands-on experience.

"We help people to discover information themselves - as discovery leads to a more permanent learning experience," says Andy Rowe. "From the moment you walk into the new training centre, you get a feel for what we are trying to do.

"Its light, minimalist appearance and superb classroom areas create a feeling of professionalism throughout. Our aim is to help each delegate realise their full potential. We are now training more people than ever before and doing it better than ever before, and I am looking forward to many years of great success here."
