Apprenticeships with Scania Trucks

The Scania Trucks Apprenticeship programme recruits 80-120 Apprentices every year, in partnership with the brand’s dealer network. The company has 89 retailer and service centre locations across the UK.

Every Scania Trucks Apprenticeship programme combines full-time on-the-job learning with block-release for training at the Scania Training Centre. Apprenticeship programmes can vary from from 12 months to 4 years depending on the qualification and business area. Non-technical Apprenticeships in either Sales, Customer Service or Business Administration typically take between 12 months and 2 years. In contrast, Technical Apprenticeships such as Heavy Vehicle Technician can take 3 to 4 years.

In addition, Apprentices receive regular training at the Scania Trucks Apprenticeship Training Centre, situated in the heart of England. The Training Centre has a broad range of state-of-the-art equipment, a well-equipped workshop with a wealth of Scania products available for Apprentices to develop their skills, as well as classrooms containing the latest diagnostic computers. It is here that Apprentices progress from taking their first steps in the Scania Trucks Apprenticeship programme to becoming experienced technicians within the Scania retailer and service centre network.

Scania Trucks has manufacturing plants in Sweden, Holland, France, Poland, Brazil and Argentina. The company also has local assembly plants in Russia, South Africa, India, Middle East and the Far East. Research and Development is centred around the company’s highly advanced laboratory facility in Södertälje, Sweden, the historic home of the brand since it was founded in 1891.

In addition, Scania is a member of the Volkswagen Group, which includes brands such as Lamborghini, Bentley, Audi and Porsche. The company has 45,000 employees worldwide, 10% of whom work in Research and Development. Scania also has operations in over 100 countries, with 1,700 employees in the UK alone.

For more than 120 years Scania has been at the forefront of the automotive industry and today is one of the world’s most recognised and respected commercial vehicle brands. From small beginnings in Sweden as a producer of railway rolling stock, Scania has developed into a leading multinational producer of heavy trucks, buses, coaches and engines.

The company’s products are based upon a highly developed ‘modular build’ system. This allows the company to manufacture a wide and diverse range of products from a relatively small number of basic components. As a result, Scania enjoys unrivalled economies of scale within its production processes, which in turn has resulted in consistent profitability.

The company specialises in the following sectors:

  • Heavy trucks: for all transport applications from 18-tonne to 150-tonne gross train weight.
  • Heavy buses and coaches: a full range of passenger carrying vehicles from service buses to luxury touring coaches.
  • Engines: for a broad spectrum of industrial, power generation and marine uses.
