Apprenticeship

Frequently Asked Questions


All of our apprenticeship programmes last for 1 - 3 years. They are designed to specifically provide you with the necessary knowledge and experience you will need to succeed within your chosen career path.

As a Burrows apprentice, you will be employed full-time for the duration of your apprenticeship programme. You will be working as a part of the team, which will give you the change to learn and develop skills as well as gaining the all-important work experience.

As well as gaining practical work experience you will be studying for a nationally recognised qualification. We hope that you stay with us once the apprenticeship is complete to be a part of the forever-expanding Burrows family and for the chance of career progression within the motor industry.

How long will my apprenticeship last for?


The time it will take to complete your apprenticeship depends on the role you have chosen. Each role is unique and requires different levels of skills, training and experience. For example, all technical apprentices are put through a 3 year programme designed and delivered by Toyota UK where you will need to attend the Toyota Academy. Since you will be maintaining vehicles, you will need as much training as possible and this will take time - but don't let it put you off!
