We are delighted to be opening the doors of our Automotive Academy over the next few weeks to aspiring apprentices and their families.

Located on Wincanton Close near to Pride Park in Derby, our Automotive Academy training facility is purpose-builtt for those wanting to work in the automotive industry. It boasts three dedicated workshops, each kitted out with all of the latest technical equipment to support apprentices undertaking body, paint, heavy vehicle and light vehicle technician programmes.

If you, or one of your family or friends is considering a career in the automotive industry then this facility is well worth a visit. The open events will take place on:

  • Wednesday 24th October, from 17:30 – 20:00
  • Wednesday 7th November, from 17:30 – 20:00
  • Saturday 17th November, from 09:00 – 12:30

You will have the opportunity to see all the facilities on offer, from the classrooms and workshops, to the computer suites and relaxation areas.

Remit apprentice’s complete online feedback at the end of each block week’s training. Last week’s group of learners gave comments such as: “the training completed this week has helped me massively”, “it was excellent”, “group atmosphere was good” and “everybody is very nice and welcoming, they know how to make you feel at ease..”.

The open events will give you the chance to get a feel for the academy and chat with the Remit team to learn more about apprenticeships and what Remit has to offer. It is the perfect opportunity to ask any questions you or your family may have about the facility, how apprenticeships work, how much you can expect to be earning as an automotive apprentice and what the excellent career prospects are.

Mick Pilling Automotive Development Director at Remit said: “We are really excited to be opening the doors at our impressive new academy here in Derby. We are extremely proud of what we have on offer to our apprentices and would encourage anyone who is considering an apprenticeship in the automotive sector to come along.“Being able to train at a state of the art facility like this, alongside working and earning a wage is such a great opportunity and I would encourage anyone with an interest in the industry to consider an apprenticeship with us.”
