GC launches Apprenticeship Academy with All Fleet Services
To mark National Apprenticeship Week, Gloucestershire College is delighted to announce the launch of a new Apprenticeship Academy in partnership with All Fleet Services, the Gloucester-based automotive industry outsourced provider.
The Apprenticeship Academy, which began recruitment earlier this month and starts on Friday 1 May, will recruit five apprentices a year to join the company for at least 12 months.
Each apprentice will study for their Level 2 Business Administration qualification at Gloucestershire College, alongside a new 10-subject, bespoke training package at All Fleet Services, which combined will equip them with a broad spectrum of workplace and business skills.
At the end of the programme, each successful apprentice will graduate with an All Fleet Services Apprenticeship. They will be guaranteed, as a minimum, an interview for a full-time permanent position within the business and any that are not successful will benefit from a job-finding pack that will include a professionally written CV, interview training and job-finding support.
Dave Scobie, managing director of All Fleet, said: “We are delighted to be announcing the introduction of the new All Fleet Services Apprenticeship Academy with Gloucestershire College. We have always been great believers in apprenticeships; having recruited 34 over three years, but this new academy represents a step change for us. We have completely re-designed our apprenticeship package to make it the best that it possibly can be.
“Our business is growing very fast on the back of providing bespoke, industry-leading, contact centre and administrative services to the automotive industry. This is presenting a wide range of exciting job opportunities for the right individuals with a high customer service ethos. The new academy will bring bright young people with little or no work experience into the business environment and equip them with the skills, knowledge and confidence to be an effective team member within the business. We hope that the majority will graduate directly into full-time permanent positions.”
Peter White, Vice Principal at Gloucestershire College, added: “The joint launch of the Apprenticeship Academy demonstrates the positive impact apprentices have already had on All Fleet Services and how important they are to the future of the business.
“As the leading provider of apprenticeships in the county, Gloucestershire College is thrilled to be working with All Fleet Services, a growing local business, to support these apprentices in achieving their qualifications for a successful career in the future.”
