Pathway to Apprenticeship

At Mantra Learning we work with young people aged from 16 to 23 to give them the best chance of getting an apprenticeship in the motor vehicle and logistics sectors.

We consistently have a number of talented hard working young people starting our Pathway/Traineeships programmes who are in need of a short work placement to put their new skills into practice and acquire some valuable work experience.

We hold regular open days which explains the Pathway programme and learners are with us between 4-6 weeks gaining real workskills in our live working environment.

To find out when our next open day is please ring 0333 220 6645.


What will they learn

To make sure trainees are ready to enter the workplace they undertake a Level 1 Award in preparing for employment which teaches them how to behave appropriately in the workplace and their rights and responsibilities as an employee.  Where appropriate we will have also helped them to brush up on their English, maths and IT skills.

During their time at Mantra Learning they will also learn key skills in the chosen sector;
