FAQs


All of our apprenticeship programmes last for 1-3 years. They are designed to specifically provide 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. You will be working as part of the team, which will give you the chance to learn and develop skills as well as gaining the all-important work experience.

You will also 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 a 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 that you have chosen. Each role is unique and requires different levels of skills, training and experience. For example, all Vehicle Technician 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 this put you off! Take a look at the table below on the apprenticeship durations:

What can my apprentice role progress in to?

Once you have completed your apprenticeship, it doesn't mean that you need to stick to that role for the rest of your working life. You are able to change roles and career paths which may lead to progression within our company. Vehicle Technicians have the chance to progress to a Master Technician, a Service Advisor or a Service Manager. If you have trained under the Business Administration apprenticeship you can progress to a Communications Specialist, Digital Sales Specialist, a Sales Administrator and more.
