DAF Apprenticeship Programme

DAF Apprenticeship Programme

The Career

DAF’s Technicians are part of a highly skilled workforce that is committed to quality. The DAF Trucks National Dealer Apprentice Programme gives Apprentices the chance to work on some of the most modern, sophisticated trucks on the road. And it’s not just a job, it’s the first step in a career that gives them the opportunity to advance, succeed and fulfil their ambitions in the motor industry.

The Career
The Challenge

The Challenge

The DAF Trucks National Dealer Apprentice Programme is a Government approved ‘traditional’ Scheme that combines hands-on workshop training with block release for college training and study. Not only will you be trained to the standards set by the Sector Skills Council for the Motor Industry, the Apprenticeship also leads to an Advanced Apprenticeship in Motor Vehicle Maintenance and Repair - a nationally recognised qualification.

The Experience

Apprentices are employed with our dealership where they work alongside qualified Technicians. Regular visits will be made by the Programme Assessor to ensure that training is effective, progress is satisfactory and that the Apprentice is actually enjoying the work. DAF Apprentices will be permanently employed by us with recognised terms and conditions of employment.

The Experience
The Knowledge and Qualification

The Knowledge and Qualification

The practical skills and hands-on experience will be gained in our fully equipped dealer workshop, whilst the training and knowledge needed to support will come through the DAF Trucks Centre of Learning at City of Bristol College. On course completion Apprentices will be recognised with an Advanced Apprenticeship in Motor Vehicle Maintenance and Repair which will include VCQ Level 3 in Heavy Vehicle Maintenance and Repair.
