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.
