LEARN WITH PRIDE
MAN offers an exceptionally supportive, open environment in which to further your interest in business studies. The scale and scope of our business across the UK and beyond offers more than enough opportunity to get invaluable business insight, both practically and strategically.
What is this apprenticeship?
MAN offers a Business Administration level 2/3 Apprenticeship diploma over three years. For the first two years, you’ll join us in the business while in year one studying for level 2 and in your second year studying for level 3. Your third year is spent entirely getting invaluable experience with various teams. Study includes theory and work-based evidence that will enable you to complete written assessments.
Throughout, you’ll rotate around departments in the business, supported by your colleagues, encouraged to ask questions and guided through each rotation to help you complete the Apprenticeship successfully.
What is the team like?
Wherever you join us, for example in our Parts or Aftersales departments, the Topused or MANcats teams, you’ll find all your colleagues are understanding, supportive and patient. Moving around a number of teams and departments also gives you the opportunity to build great working relationships and a network that can help to grow your skills, knowledge and your career potential.
Life as an apprentice
An apprenticeship with MAN is designed to give you the best start to your career. You’ll learn on the job, getting invaluable experience on real projects with real responsibility. Tasks could include creating orders, meeting with suppliers, setting up new parts, ordering merchandise and creating Purchase Orders. You’ll also collaborate with colleagues in other departments to get a real insight into how the business works.
Studies are undertaken at a local college, which typically can be for a week at a time every few months. Over the year, you’ll attend four blocks, studying the topics for each assignment and providing examples of tasks completed in the workplace. All contribute towards your qualification.
As your skills and knowledge grow, you’ll be given more challenging tasks and responsibility.
Our approach to learning
Throughout your apprenticeship, you’ll be supported by the Learning & Development team and HR.
The business is investing in your potential and wants you to achieve it, so you’ll be guided at every stage and your progress reviewed to help keep you on track.
Every day offers new opportunities to learn, whether that’s on the job or through a variety of training courses offered on-site. These include everything from practical office skills to technical knowledge. If there’s an area you’re like to explore or a skill that would be useful for you to develop, management are open to ideas and supporting your coaching and training.
An apprenticeship opens up many different career routes. Complete the apprenticeship successfully and demonstrate further potential means you could be offered a full-time job with competitive salary.
You could also choose to achieve another qualification with MAN’s support while you work full-time.
