Apprenticeships with Volkswagen

The Volkswagen Apprenticeship programme offers a range of roles with the VW Dealer network. There are more than 200 VW Dealers in towns all across the UK. About 20 of these dealers are in Scotland, with a further 10 in Wales. There are 4 VW Dealers in Northern Ireland, and 1 VW Body Repair workshop.

Three of the four Volkswagen Apprenticeship roles on offer work solely on the VW brand in a VW Dealer. However, the VW Body Repair & Paint scheme includes working on cars from other brands within the VW Group. This means you may also be trained on how to repair and paint cars from Audi, SEAT and SKODA.

The Volkswagen Apprenticeships scheme is a 3 year programme. In Year 2, you will take part in one of VW’s Outward Bound weeks. This is where you will make new friends, as well as finding your own limits and expanding your life skills.

All Volkswagen Apprenticeship roles offer the chance to work with an exciting range of cars, and to learn a diverse range of new skills. You will also complete several weeks of training via block release at the Volkswagen Apprenticeship training centre, both in the classroom and workshop.
