Not­ting­ham Col­lege held a fan­tas­tic recog­ni­tion evening along­side Tes­la to cel­e­brate the grad­u­a­tion of 10 appren­tices from the Tes­la appren­tice­ship pro­gramme. The event was held at our EMTEC cen­tre in Rud­ding­ton, home to one of the UK’s largest auto­mo­tive train­ing centres. 

The Tes­la Appren­tice­ship Pro­gramme pro­vides world-class train­ing and sees appren­tices from across the coun­try under­take their train­ing here in Not­ting­ham. The pro­gramme is designed to train and devel­op appren­tices in a way that enables them to keep pace with advanc­ing tech­nol­o­gy and high lev­els of cus­tomer ser­vice as well as achieve for­mal qual­i­fi­ca­tions through exten­sive prod­uct train­ing, all while in full-time employment.

The pro­gramme offers superb career prospects and all 10 grad­u­at­ing appren­tices have been offered employ­ment by Tesla.

Amongst those grad­u­at­ing was Scott Thomp­son who was award­ed Appren­tice of the Year.

He was nom­i­nat­ed by both Tes­la and the Col­lege for his over­all achieve­ment and work ethic. 

All grad­u­at­ing appren­tices have achieved a Lev­el 2 Auto Care Tech­ni­cian qual­i­fi­ca­tion and cer­tifi­cates were award­ed by; Ser­vice and HR lead­ers from Tes­la and Glen Smith, Appren­tice Pro­gramme Deliv­ery Man­ag­er EMTEC

Speak­ing of the suc­cess of the appren­tices on the pro­gramme, Glen Smith, Appren­tice Pro­gramme Deliv­ery Man­ag­er at EMTEC said:

The Tes­la pro­gramme has dove­tailed a lev­el 2 qual­i­fi­ca­tion with the advanced tech­nol­o­gy of the com­pa­ny and the work the learn­ers con­duct at their Ser­vice Cen­tres. The 10 suc­cess­ful grad­u­ates have also achieved lev­el 3 awards in Refrig­er­ant Han­dling and High Volt­age Vehicles. 

The suc­cess of these first can­di­dates is a tes­ta­ment to the hard work of the whole EMTEC team and the can­di­dates themselves”
