Ferrari announces £350,000 apprenticeship programme

As a part of Apprenticeship Week, Ferrari North Europe Ltd has announce an investment of over £350,000 in the Ferrari North Europe Apprentice Programme in the UK, in partnership with the Official Ferrari Dealer Network, offering nationally recognised qualifications accredited by IMI Awards.

The programme will be managed in-house and will offer a opportunity for outstanding school leavers to receive three years specialised training on Ferrari’s class-leading and technically innovative range of cars, in line with the Government’s Advanced Modern Apprenticeship guidelines.

Matteo Torre, Regional Manager Ferrari North Europe, commented: “This project is part of the Ferrari philosophy of investing in young talent. Every year, Ferrari has a number of scholarships dedicated to deserving students. We are proud to continue this philosophy through the Ferrari North Europe Apprentice Programme and to ensure that the Ferrari dealer network has a continual supply of high quality, knowledgeable and expertly trained apprentices who will hopefully become the Ferrari technicians of the future.”

The Ferrari North Europe Apprentice Programme is open to all school leavers aged 16 and over, and includes in-house and in-dealer training for 3 years, with 24 weeks of specific training at Ferrari North Europe’s head office during the programme. Potential apprentices can register their interest in the programme by sending an email to: apprenticeships@ferrari.com.

Applicants will be contacted after Friday 01 April 2011 when the application process for the next intake of Apprentices begins, with an aptitude test and a 2-hour interview with a representative of Ferrari North Europe at an Official Ferrari Dealer. Training will commence at Ferrari North Europe’s head office in September 2011.
