Hard work pays off - Belfast Audi
Added: 10 July 2019
10 apprentices from the UK were selected and both Matthew Buchanan and Niall McGrattan from Belfast Audi were high performers throughout their apprenticeship and were selected for this programme.
What’s the Elite group?
Every apprentice who joins the Elite Group has passed their Service Technician Accreditation (STA) on the first attempt, and demonstrated a positive attitude towards their development.
Their efforts are rewarded with additional fast-track training that accelerates the normal learning journey by six to 12 months. This means apprentices can quickly progress along the Diagnostic Technician qualification pathway. Our Audi apprentices will also be recognised with a specific award to celebrate their achievement.Jonny Connelly, Volkswagen Group Apprentice Academy Manager for the Apprenticeship Programme, said: “The Elite Group is a fantastic way to recognise apprentices who have really excelled above and beyond apprenticeship training. By providing an opportunity for them to take part in the Diagnostic Technician pathway at this early stage, we are recognising their achievement and increasing the competency of the network.”
