News: Super­Bike Fac­to­ry launch­es its first motor­cy­cle appren­tice­ship scheme with Not­ting­ham College.

EMTEC, Our auto­mo­tive cen­tre are proud to have part­nered with Super­Bike Fac­to­ry, Europe’s largest used motor­bike retail­er, to launch their first appren­tice­ship scheme, which is focused on the main­te­nance and ser­vic­ing of motorbikes. 

The launch of the appren­tice­ship scheme looks to solve a his­toric issue for the sec­tor; the lack of a struc­tured train­ing pro­gramme for aspir­ing motor­cy­cle tech­ni­cians. Through the launch of a ful­ly accred­it­ed pro­gramme, Super­Bike Fac­to­ry has the abil­i­ty to offer the vol­ume rep­e­ti­tion and vari­ety of bikes, along with the nec­es­sary sup­port, to offer exclu­sive, first-class work­shops to devel­op top-qual­i­ty technicians. 

An ini­tial eight appren­tices have joined the two-year scheme and will com­plete their train­ing with us at our EMTEC site in Rud­ding­ton. Their appren­tice­ship began at the start of the month and all trainees are get­ting stuck in and enjoy­ing the pro­gramme so far. 

SuperBike's new cohort of apprentices started just a few weeks ago.
Harrison, Tom and Rachel began their apprenticeships at the start of June 2022 and have already been getting stuck in.

In a pos­i­tive way, it’s com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent to what I expect­ed. I didn’t think in my first week I would be learn­ing about strip­ping down an engine! – Harrison 

 — Har­ri­son, Super­Bike Apprentice

Inter­est­ing and fun! I can’t believe in just a cou­ple of years I’ll be ready to do this all on my own. 

 — Tom, Super­Bike Apprentice

It has been so fun to bring the class­room learn­ing to the work­shop and get hands on! 

 — Rachel — Super­Bike Apprentice

The eight appren­tices are expect­ed to join the Super­Bike Fac­to­ry fam­i­ly, when they have grad­u­at­ed from the scheme, help­ing to ser­vice and retail the over 2,000 motor­bikes that the com­pa­ny has in stock at any one time. Super­Bike Fac­to­ry expects to launch a sec­ond round of the appren­tice­ship scheme in Sep­tem­ber 2022, with up to an addi­tion­al 12 appren­tices tak­ing part.

Our EMTEC auto­mo­tive cen­tre works with some of the works with some of the world’s most well-know auto­mo­tive brands, we are glob­al­ly renowned and the regions most estab­lished provider of auto­mo­tive training.
