Have a look at what Joe from Scania GB has to say: Meet Joe – Technician apprentice of the year award winner (2023): Joe started at Scania in 2020, with no previous experience. He is now a fully qualified HGV technician and has just won the ‘Apprentice of the Year’ award. “From the start, I was made to feel part of the family, Scania paid for all the apprentices throughout the country to go on a team bonding week, completing fun challenges, building teamwork, and learning leadership skills. When I heard about the ‘apprentice of the year’ award my goal was always to win it. I have learnt so much throughout my 3 years in the workshop, from the course and from all the experienced technicians around me. I have two new goals now… to help our next apprentice win apprentice of the year and to develop my own skills further by entering the ‘IMI’ awards. I would highly recommend an apprenticeship with Scania, to anyone interested in becoming an HGV technician”. Quote from Scania GB MD, Chris Newitt: “Apprentices are a vital part of Scania. They represent the future not just for us but also the wider automotive industry. As a large global organisation, it is essential that we invest in our young people’s futures. By doing so it allows us to help young people start their working life with the opportunity to grow and develop, all with the peace of mind that being part of a successful global company brings. As the Managing Director of Scania UK, it is my job to ensure we have a diverse and dynamic group of apprentices that we can help shape and nurture to enjoy a successful career, and together, as a team, ensure the future success of Scania”.
