Bus, coach & heavy vehicle apprenticeships

Three new apprenticeship standards have been developed for bus, coach and heavy vehicle engineering. They form progressive career pathways, incorporating the knowledge, skills and behaviours employers have defined for today’s industry.

The standards have been designed so that they apply across the sector, allowing organisations to incorporate their own ways of working, products and services into the learning and development, whilst ensuring it meets one national standard.
