    With this apprenticeship, most of your time will be spent at a Dennison Commercials Dealerpoint gaining experience with on-the-job training, however, you will also participate in 15 two week periods of learning at Volvo’s preferred technical college at Stephenson College in England.  At the college you will complete course modules under the expert guidance of a dedicated team of professionals, covering technology in engines, transmission and the latest electronic diagnostic techniques.  At the end of your college course you will have completed your NVQ levels 2 and 3 in Vehicle Maintenance & Repair (Heavy Vehicle).

    In return for your commitment to learning Dennisons take care of everything else including your course fees, accommodation, flights, meals, travel expenses and, of course, your wages!  

    During your residential block release at the college a dedicated host is provided to ensure that students are cared for whilst away from home, and, back at Dennison Commercials, you will be provided with an experienced mentor for day to day support and guidance.
