In addition, you will receive extensive on-the-job practical work experience in one of Veolia’s 53 fleet workshops around the country.
The academy will also develop further skills enabling you to receive recognised industry standards and qualifications to ensure the company has an industry-leading technically-trained team. For Apprentices who wish to develop their leadership and management skills, future opportunities to obtain a higher level apprenticeship may also be available.
