Is it for you?

Our apprenticeships are perfect for people who like to get their hands dirty and work on projects where they can make transformations happen. We have a range of Bodyshop apprenticeships to choose from:

MET Technicians

You'll be identifying and fixing damaged mechanical and electrical components of the vehicle.

Vehicle Refinisher

You'll be preparing the vehicle’s surface, matching and mixing colours and spraying them to make the vehicles look as good as new.

Body Repairer

You'll be the one fixing any damage to any non-moving parts after an accident and restoring the vehicle back to its former glory.

What you'll do

As well as receiving on-the-job training, you’ll attend our GTG training centres and will be regularly assessed.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Diagnose damage and assess vehicles.
  • Identify the best course of action to fix the damage.
  • Practical hands-on learning with how to carry out repairs.
  • Work on a range of manufacturers and models.

With each Bodyshop apprenticeship, there will be tailored training to suit your future career and interests. At GTG, you will be assigned a mentor who will teach you using high-quality tools and equipment and provide you with all the practical and theory skills you need to excel in your role.
