Turn your passion for cars into a challenging and rewarding career!
Introducing Auckland’s newest and most exciting opportunity for young school leavers with a passion for everything automotive! Auto Super Shoppes Automotive Academy.
June 2017 will see the first intake of this exciting new educational opportunity — with a difference. Successful graduates from the academy will be guaranteed a job with one of the 83 Auto Super Shoppes around New Zealand, or one of their associated automotive parts suppliers.
General manger of Auto Super Shoppes, Kellie Tremayne, explains the main point of difference in this new venture: “Unlike other automotive pre-trade courses that take up the best part of a full school year, the academy will be an accelerated learning opportunity that will take place over 12 weeks of automotive workshop and classroom education. The students will be expected to turn up on time, with the right attitude, prepared and ready to learn. They will be taught automotive skills that will see them join the workforce as a valuable and contributing staff member from day one, but more importantly, they will also be taught good work ethic and what their future employer will expect of an Auto Super Shoppe Academy graduate. They will be learning alongside other students who are just as passionate with a high level of motivation to succeed.”
Each intake into the academy has only 15 placements, meaning the learning environment is far more personal, and they will be learning from one of the best and most experienced automotive tutors in New Zealand. The Auto Super Shoppe Automotive Academy aligns its teachings to the MITO apprenticeship curriculum.
The demand for qualified technicians is higher than ever. Auto Super Shoppes chain of premium automotive repairers have recognised that to develop and grow this essential skillset they need to attract the eager school leaver and train them to the high standard expected of an Auto Super Shoppe technician.
If you know of someone who lives and breathes everything automotive and you strongly suspect if they cut themselves they would bleed engine oil, then this is the pre-trade course for them.
