Keltruck Scania Apprenticeships continue to go from strength-to-strength with a total of five students this year graduating at the end of their four-year course.

Scania’s award-winning apprentice programme gives you the chance to join the select group of specialist technicians working on some of the most modern, sophisticated trucks on the road. The four-year Scania modern apprenticeship is for individuals who want to work with heavy trucks and/or who have a keen interest in vehicle body repair processes, and we are proud to celebrate this outstanding achievement with this year’s successful candidates.

At Keltruck we aim to grow our own where we can, with our very own company founder Chris Kelly and our Aftersales Director Russ Warner both starting their careers as industry apprentices. Both Chris & Russ take a close personal interest in the success of the apprenticeship programmes and Russ Warner was happy to attend this year’s Scania Apprenticeship Graduation Ceremony. The ceremony took place on Tuesday 12 July at the Leicester Marriott Hotel with four of our five candidates present due to COVID-19.

“Having started my career as an apprentice technician, it made me feel exceptionally proud to be present at the graduation ceremony, and I am very pleased by their professional conduct on the evening, they are simply just lovely guys”, said Russ Warner, Keltruck aftersales director and co-owner of the business.

Many of our apprentices have aspirations within the business, showing their interest in progressing throughout their career with Keltruck to be the next Branch Manager and have the responsibility to manage their own site and team one day.

“My response for anyone who wants to progress in their career at Keltruck is always for them to work hard, stay loyal, believe and most of all have respect for your team and colleagues along the way. There is no reason why you can’t achieve your goals at Keltruck. As quoted by Helen Keller ‘Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much'”, said Russ.

With the support of the team within our branches Keltruck believe these young men will go from strength-to-strength.

“We see our apprentices as valuable members of the team and it has been a pleasure seeing their development into a fully skilled Scania Technicians. However, I feel this is just to start of their Keltruck career”, commented Matthew Mawer, Sutton Branch Manager.
