AW guarantee the future of the industry with the support of the Volkswagen group paint and body apprenticeship training programme. By passing vital skills to a new generation, AW secure the flow of highly skilled manufacturer trained technicians. At AW we like to call this process ‘growing your own.’

James is our latest recruit to join us from the apprenticeship training programme; he will undertake a three year block release scheme at AW as well as spending time at the VWG national learning centre in Milton Keynes. James will attend the NLC for one week of training every six weeks, and earn a salary whilst he learns his trade.

Sleaford branch Manager Steve Hoe had this to say, “I am delighted to welcome James to AW, here he will quickly develop and harness his skills under the guidance of myself and our team of manufacturer trained technicians. I would also like to thank Volkswagen group for delivering such an advanced apprenticeship programme, which is highly regarded as the best within the motor industry.”
