Burrows Search for a Star

What is it?


Burrows Search for a Star is a apprenticeship programme for young individuals who are looking for an apprentice opportunity within the motor trade.

At the start of the new year we will be visiting schools across South Yorkshire and talking to students about the Search for a Star campaign and the working life as an apprentice at Burrows Motor Company. Giving you the chance to ask any questions you may have.

Students, parents and guardians are invited to the fun open evenings at our dealerships to give the students access to the insights of the different areas of Burrows which included a tour of the workshop, speeches from staff, meeting some of the Burrows Toyota team members and Toyota Academy.

Take a look at the different stages of the Burrows apprenticeship scheme below for more details.
