Last week Ford & Slater held an apprenticeships open evening at our headquarters in Leicester, where we welcomed over 30 prospective young apprentices, and their families to the largest of our ten sites.
The evening began with a short presentation from our Apprenticeship Co-ordinator, Lee Sursham, introducing guests to the company and into the world of DAF Trucks, PACCAR Inc. and of course, our apprenticeship schemes.
Our visitors then donned high vis jackets before embarking on a tour of the Ford & Slater departments, ending in the workshop where we had arranged various hands-on activities for attendees to get hands on with some real vehicles, including welding, electrics and building a rear tail light.
We would like to thank all students, parents and guardians for visiting our dealership to learn more about our apprenticeships, and we hope to see some of you on a Ford & Slater apprentice programme in the future.
