AW gears up with apprentices

Six new apprentices are geared up and ready to launch their new career with AW Repair Group.

In partnership with AutoRaise and Emtec Training, the youngsters – Harvey, Charlie, Jack, Ryan, Joshua and Leon – follow in the footsteps of Georgie, Kane and Joe who are now year two and three apprentices with AW Repair Group.

The 16-19 year olds will be training in a variety of panel, paint and MET roles as well as the new multi-skilled apprenticeship trailblazed by AutoRaise and now government approved.

Bob Linwood, CEO of AutoRaise, said, ‘Andrew, James, Jade and the AW team have really grabbed hold of the whole apprenticeship opportunity and it feels great that AutoRaise helped stimulate some of this initiative.

‘We all felt that an Autumn Showcase Event would be good but as it turns out, AW have been able to create a fresh cohort of motivated young people to join the group as apprentices. It’s the latest indication of the impact AutoRaise are having on the industry’s skills shortage.’

The apprentices will receive a branded roll cabinet and top box starter pack including essential beginner tools, certification folder, personnel handbook, USB drive and an AW notepad within a satchel during their induction at AW.
