Keltruck’s school visit inspires next generation of transport engineers 23 July 2012
Independent Scania dealer Keltruck visited the Kenilworth School and Sports College recently to discuss the multiple career paths that are available from the Scania Apprenticeship Scheme.
Managers Russ Kelly, Andrew Bentley and Matthew Mawer were on hand to answer questions about the schemes, and also to talk through engineering roles available in the Scania network, which has 87 dealers in the UK.
Representatives from the Scania Training Centre, Steve Brown and Dave Krstic, provided an element of fun for the day, with a career presentation and quiz to students for 'guess the component'.
Andrew Bentley, general manager, marketing and business development at Keltruck, explains that students and teachers were given the opportunity to look all over a Scania G440 6x2/4 tractor unit – including under the cab.
"Apprentices are the future of our organisations," states Bentley. "It has always been high in the agenda at Keltruck and remains so."
And he adds: "The interesting point to this is perception. We tackled the year-eight students on their perception of working within heavy commercials vehicle dealer environment, which was quite enlightening for them.
"They didn't realise the different skill sets that are required to form the team of specialists that run and operate a commercial vehicle dealer," he explains.
