The BMW Retailer Network offers an exciting range of career opportunities for exceptional young people via the BMW Apprenticeship Programmes, which have recently attained the highest grade of 'Outstanding' from Ofsted.
The Apprenticeship Programmes themselves are unique to BMW with particular emphasis on the latest technology. Training takes place predominantly at your BMW Centre, with specialised training at one of our outstanding training centres (depending on the programme).
Experienced trainers deliver the material and practical assignments necessary to help you achieve your qualification. We also have a team of representatives from the BMW Group who follow your progress by making regular visits to see you at your place of work, ensuring all your training needs are met.
If you are interested in applying for a BMW Apprenticeship you will need a good educational background and already have, or expect to receive, four GCSE's (or equivalent) including English, Maths and a Science based subject*.
If successful, you will be based at a BMW Centre - a completely independent business, but as part of BMW (UK) Limited's Retailer network, operating in line with BMW's high standards in all that they do.
Every new apprentice will attend an induction programme at the Plas Menai National Watersports Centre in Wales. Time spent here helps apprentices make friends, appreciate others' strengths and weaknesses, and understand the value of teamwork and skill-sharing - key skills that they can carry forward to the BMW Academy and day-to-day life in the BMW Centre. Of course, it's also about having fun, so the students can take part in the myriad of activities on and off the water, including sailing, gorge walking, powerboating, canoe and kayaking, rope walking and climbing all under the trained eye of expert instructors.
