NORTH of England bus operator Transdev is creating three new engineering apprenticeships following on from the recent National Apprenticeship Week.The three-year apprenticeships will lead to qualification as a Heavy Vehicle Service and Maintenance Technician – a vital role which ensures every bus on the road is reliable in service, and above all, safe.

The range of apprenticeships under way at Transdev’s depots includes specialised training programmes covering human resources, information technology and leadership skills all underway at various levels in its organisation.

All the apprenticeships are being delivered through the bus operator’s own in-house training and recruitment division, ‘the ACADEMY by Transdev’.
