Why become a trainer?

At Arnold Clark, technicians are the driving force of our business. And whether you started with Arnold Clark as an apprentice or joined us later in your career, you’ll know how important regular training is in your role. If you’re looking for a new challenge, becoming a trainer at GTG and passing on your knowledge and experience is a great way to be part of the future of the automotive industry.

What would I be doing?

Delivering high quality automotive training

To apprentices and commercial delegates.

Demonstrating your technical knowledge

To students in the workshop and classroom.

Monitoring learners’ progress

Seeing them develop throughout their training.

What are the requirements?

Don’t worry, you don’t need any formal teacher training, just a Level 3 technical qualification in either Light Vehicle or Body Repair.

If you’re currently a master technician, foreman or chargehand, this could be the next step in your career, but technicians, spray painters and panel beaters with 7-10 years of experience are also strongly encouraged to apply.

Shaun as a Technician and Trainer

Hear from one of our technical trainers

Shaun Dunning, Technical Trainer and Department Team Leader at GTG Glasgow, progressed from master technician to trainer five years ago. We caught up with him about his role...

How long have you worked at GTG?

I’ve been at GTG for five years and with Arnold Clark for 17 years in total. What I enjoy most is the fact that every week is different – there’s always something going on or to do.

What did you do before you were a trainer?

I was the master technician for Nissan UK. Obviously the technical experience came with me but also I knew the logical way you approach problems, which can be used in any situation and not just when fixing a car.

What are the challenging elements of your job?

Every trainee we see here comes with their own challenges. Having a strong team around you for support always helps overcome any boundaries we face.

Would you recommend working for GTG?

Absolutely. The levels of professionalism and support helped me out from day one on the job right up until now. If you wake up looking forward to work then you know it’s the right job.

What’s the most rewarding part of your job?

Seeing someone that you met as a quiet and unsure student go on to pass their apprenticeship and develop as a person along the way.
