Accident repair apprenticeships offered by motor firms

Ford-owned British automakers Jaguar and Land Rover are giving people the chance to take on an accident repair apprenticeship.

The companies have announced that its technical academy is to collaborate with the Motor Insurance Repair Research Centre in Berkshire in order to launch two new courses.

People over 16 who complete the programme will receive NVQ levels 2 & 3 in Vehicle Body & Paint Operations and receive the opportunity to go on to achieve an Automotive Technician Accreditation.

"The new apprenticeships will play an important role in the companies’ drive to develop the talent capable of repairing the Jaguars and Land Rovers of tomorrow," read a statement.

Meanwhile, the first Jaguar XF has rolled off production lines near Birmingham.

The 3.0-litre version of the model will set motorists back £32,925, while the 4.2 unit can be picked up by motorists for £53,925.
