FORMER CHIPPING NORTON SCHOOL PUPILS TAKE ON JAYBEE APPRENTICE ROLES
Two former Chipping Norton schoolpupils are proving that apprenticeships are still alive and well in the modern workplace after taking up roles at Jaybee Motors Renault in Banbury.
Ryan Hanks, aged 17, recently started at Jaybee as a parts apprentice while fellow Chipping Norton School alumnus Michael Nurden, aged 20, also from Chipping Norton, has just started his first year as an apprentice technician in the service department.
After leaving school, Ryan worked for another dealership, but moved to Jaybee
to start a three-year course with on-site training and classroom-based instruction delivered by VT Training - the UK’s largest work-based provider of government funded and commercial learning programmes.
His current job sees him working with parts deliveries, sorting out stock and dealing directly with Renault customers.
His colleague Michael left school and took up an apprenticeship in agricultural engineering but came to Jaybee on work experience and was offered a three-year training placement.
Colin Corne, Aftersales and Marketing Director at Jaybee Motors, said: “Staff training is a priority at Jaybee, and we see it as essential in ensuring that we offer our customers the very highest standards of customer care. Investing in apprentices’ training has brought enormous value to businesses such as ours by ensuring a high skill level, productivity and staff retention.”
Renault apprenticeships last three years and combine workshop experience at a Renault dealership with classroom training.
The apprenticeship leads to a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) Level Three technical certificate that is internationally recognised by the motor industry.
