BMW Mini apprentices inspire UTC Reading engineers
Three apprentices from BMW MINI visited UTC Reading on Tuesday 21 February to inform students about apprenticeship opportunities for engineers at BMW MINI's Oxford site.
They explained that BMW offer apprenticeships lasting between three and four years and covering a wide range of skills. Training leads to an NVQ Level 3 qualification and some apprentices will have the opportunity to progress right through to degree level. The apprenticeship teaching is done at MINI Plant Oxford's state of the art training school.
The apprentices who presented were at different stages of their careers at BMW and working on different strands of the business, so were able to give good insights to the students who attended. Students asked many questions including how career aspirations are acknowledged at BMW MINI, the structure of the apprenticeship programme and of course about the cars they drive!
