- How did Chloe get into the automotive industry?Chloe used to work every Saturday in a fast-fit garage helping around the workshop. During the week, she attended Milton Keynes College while she was working towards her qualification in Light Vehicle Repair & Maintenance. She completed and passed the qualification with flying colours!
- Chloe began her three-year apprenticeship at Brian Currie Ltd in 2015.In 2015, the Brian Currie Van Centre approached the Milton Keynes College as they were looking for an Apprentice to join their new Van Centre facility in Milton Keynes. Chloe was picked from a number of students by her tutors to come in for a one-week work placement at Brian Currie. The rest is history!
In January 2016, Chloe started her journey on the Volkswagen Commercial Apprenticeship scheme. She is now embarking on her third and final year.
- Does her role involve any further training?Training does not stop even when Chloe returns to work. Chloe has visits from field appraisers who assess her work in the workplace and report as well as discuss their findings. Overall, visits on site are very productive. She always proves that she has an excellent ability to carry out numerous tasks and demonstrates a very professional attitude. Once Chloe completes her apprenticeship scheme, her training will further accelerate.

Working with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, there is a wide range of options available.”
