Lookers more than doubles apprentice intake in 2017

Lookers more than doubles apprentice intake in 2017

This year the group has grown its intake 78 in 2016 to 162.  The retailer has trained 238 technical apprentices over the last three years and currently has over 550 on its books.

Matthew Clay, group qualifications manager at Lookers, said: “2017 has been a huge year for the Lookers apprenticeship programme, not only due to our increased intake but also as a result of some of the improvements we’ve made to it.

“It’s critical to the business and the motor industry as a whole that we invest in the future of our skills base and support enthusiastic young technicians as they embark on their burgeoning careers.”

Lookers also said it want to increase the number of female apprentices it employs. The group currently employs nine female apprentices and said it is keen to increase this with next year’s intake.

The group is also hoping to enhance its apprenticeship programme further after striking up a relationship with the Duke of Edinburgh Awards which will help it identify suitable candidates.
