Ready, Set, Go for Launch of Motorcycle Apprenticeship at Crawley College

15 March 2024

Crawley College has launched a new motorcycle apprenticeship this week.

Research by Chichester College Group’s apprenticeship team discovered there is a lack of training in the south east region for this profession and recognised the need to address this.

But on Wednesday, Crawley College changed this by welcoming a cohort of six apprentices onto an exciting journey into the motorcycle world, with a new level 3 motorcycle technician apprenticeship.

These apprentices will now gain the skills and knowledge to become a qualified motorcycle technician. Once they complete their apprenticeship, they will be eligible to apply to join the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) Professional Register.

Sally Challis-Manning MBE, Principal of Crawley College, said: “This is such wonderful news for our college.

“To be able to give students ultimately a unique apprenticeship offering is such an honour, and we are very excited to watch these apprentices progress and flourish throughout their qualification.”

A wide range of modules will be covered, from the service of motorcycles in line with manufacturer specifications to applying advanced diagnostic principles, logical problem-solving techniques and complex rectifications.

Apprentice Tom Berbuto (20) added: “To be honest with you, I am just absolutely buzzing to be starting this apprenticeship and look forward to where it will take me next.”
