You’ll gain the opportunity to be part of our garage service teams delivering excellent service to our internal and external customers.

About the training

Our apprenticeships are designed so they offer a structured programme that takes you through the skills you need to do a job well. Along the way there are targets and checks to make sure each apprentice is supported and is making progress.

Most training is delivered on the job. You will be surrounded by colleagues who are experts in their field who will deliver the learning and support to make sure you are on track and making progress. In addition time is spent at college with a local training provider to consolidate this learning in a classroom environment as you progress to achieving your apprenticeship.

The outcome of this blended learning method will be a vocational qualification for our apprentices which will be useful in your job and help you succeed in their future career.

Within BT you will receive plenty of support and encouragement, not only from your manager but also from our dedicated apprentice development team, who will help you create a personal development plan and coach you throughout the journey as you work towards your apprenticeship.
