Message from our Chief Executive:

S&B Automotive Academy is open for business once again

As Chief Executive I have been looking forward to making this announcement for the past four months and now I am delighted to say that the moment is here when our Academy can re-start classroom delivery

My team have been working incredibly hard behind the scenes to ensure that our premises are all fully compliant with Covid security and that all who use our workshops and classrooms will be safe while onsite. It is clear that the motor industry is getting back to normal working as well because our short courses and accreditations are busier than ever with high demand across all that we offer. We know that our customers rely on us to support their businesses with high quality training and to meet this expectation we are arranging as many extra sessions as necessary to satisfy the surge in demand. We are also offering delivery of some courses on employer premises to help support our customers as flexibly as possible as well as now providing IRTEC accreditation in our own workshops.

I hope to be able to welcome apprentices back to the Academy from September and timetables for the 20/21 academic year will be issued soon. In the meantime all apprentices will continue to study with us via virtual classrooms, complete assignments and record all off the job learning in their elogbooks. The Account Manager team is now fully operational once again and making visits to employer premises to ensure we are providing all necessary support.

We are actively recruiting new apprentices for this year’s intake. Many employers have already started to recruit through us so please get in touch if you need our help in finding high quality candidates. We can also support employers who wish to use the Traineeship programme as a precursor to apprenticeships and remember that there are now several funding incentives to support work place learning.

Pre-lockdown normal might still be on hold, but S& B is up and running again – supporting learners, supporting business and delivering skills.

You can contact us at any time via 0117 953 3001 or contactus@sandbaa.com

Continue to keep safe and well
