How It Works

The Volkswagen Advanced Apprenticeship Programme is designed to train and develop apprentices in a way that enables them to keep pace with advancing technology and high levels of customer service.

The comprehensive, three-year Programme provides apprentices with an exciting and challenging opportunity to achieve formal qualifications through extensive product training, while in full-time employment.

On completing the course, apprentices will gain a NVQ Level 3, an IMI Technical Certificate, an Advanced Apprenticeship Completion Certificate and Key and Core Skills Certificates relevant to their chosen specialist area. Volkswagen has developed and approved the Advanced Apprenticeship Programme structure and provides vehicles, training rigs, tools and materials to ensure the training is relevant.

Training at the Volkswagen Group Apprentice Training Centre is residential and delivered in one-week blocks throughout the Programme.

In addition, Volkswagen's own special technical trainers will deliver product specific courses, keeping apprentices up-to-date with Volkswagen Group's latest technology.

The Volkswagen Group Advanced Apprenticeship Programme is available throughout the whole of the UK. As and when we have a vacancy registered in your area, we will contact you to discuss your application and suitability in more detail.
