SsangYong Motors and EMTEC launch apprenticeship search

SsangYong Motors UK has renewed its partnership with EMTEC while also announced plans to relaunch its Technician Apprenticeship Programme.

The three-year programme includes eight, one-week long modules per year, delivered at the SsangYong Academy in Nottingham.

EMTEC is now recruiting apprenticeships on behalf of the SsangYong dealer network and will begin delivering training from its Nottingham premises from September 2023.

Mark Burrows, aftersales director at SsangYong Motors UK, said: “I am delighted to announce the continuation of our Technician Apprenticeship Programme, and commencing the journey in developing technicians of the future.

“The programme is designed to deliver blended learning pathways providing apprentices with future technical skills experience, expertise and hands-on tuition from directly within the automotive industry, while also enabling them to earn as they learn. It’s been specifically designed to maximise on-the-job training whilst minimising time away from the dealership.

“Apprenticeships form an important part of our industry, training a new generation of skilled workers. As we move ever closer to our electrification goals, the skills that our apprentices learn will become ever more important. This is why SsangYong continues to invest in apprenticeships.”
