Mercedes-Benz invest in training

01 July 2013 #Sustainability Case studies

Mercedes-Benz UK has invested £2.1 million into the new facilities which provide industry leading training for young people to become Mercedes-Benz qualified technicians and parts advisors.  The site was opened by HRH Duke of York and became fully operational in April 2012.

In 2012, 159 apprentices joined the Mercedes-Benz Apprentice Programme – from a total of 11,500 applications. The programme has been recently rewarded by Ofsted inspection, the Programme a Grade One Outstanding for the ‘Outcomes for Learners’.

In total, 1,200 apprentices have graduated from the programme since 1995 and 60 per cent of those who graduate are still with the Mercedes-Benz brand 10 years on, many progressing to senior positions. The Apprentice Programme has been running for 18 years, with an average intake of 117 apprentices per year and a 92 per cent qualification success rate.
