A record graduation for Thatcham

by

A record number of accident repair technicians graduated from Thatcham’s Apprentice Academy this month.

The annual graduation from Thatcham has become something of a calendar event in the trade, not only for the apprentice taking their first steps into the business, but also for the industry benefiting from a fresh influx of new talent.

To accommodate such a large number of apprentices, this year’s graduation ceremony was run over two separate events. 50 extra apprentices received their honours thanks to Thatchams ongoing partnership with the Nationwide Apprenticeship Academy scheme.

Nationwide re-launched its apprenticeship scheme in conjunction with Thatcham earlier this year. Its aim has been to increase support for apprenticeships, focus technical skills and improve retention during and after training.

Alongside the Nationwide scheme graduates, another 37 apprentices from the three accident repair disciplines of Panel, Paint and M.E.T – Mechanical, Electrical and Trim – celebrated this important career milestone.
