Ayrshire College Apprentices Accelerate Toward Success with Bridgend Motor Group!

Ayrshire College Apprentices Accelerate Toward Success with Bridgend Motor Group! Image

This new collaboration between the College and Bridgend Motor Group will give successful full-time motor vehicle students from pre-apprenticeship courses the opportunity to enrol in Bridgend's Training Academy — then upon successful completion, the learners will return to study for a Modern Apprenticeship.

Bridgend Motor Group comprises 13 departments whose operations encompass used car sales, used commercial vehicle sales, service, maintenance, MOT and accident repair.

The family-owned firm, with more than 250 local employees across seven branches covering North, South and East Ayrshire, has been investing in the community for almost a century.

Alison Mitchell, HR Manager at Bridgend Motor Group, said: “We are delighted to partner with Ayrshire College and give its students the chance to join our academy programme and progress through a Modern Apprenticeship.

“Bridgend Motor Group has been driving Ayrshire forward since 1930 and we believe that this partnership will provide learners with a pathway to full-time employment in the region and help our business to flourish.” 

Stuart Millar, Head of Apprenticeships and Work Based Learning said: “This innovative link-up with Bridgend Motor Group gives students a fantastic opportunity to gain employment at one of Scotland’s leading companies.

The structured combination of college-based and work-based learning of a Motor Vehicle Modern Apprenticeship underpinned by Bridgend’s training academy will provide successful apprentices with a unique combination of skills and experience to support their future career.”
