The British Motorcycle Manufacturing Academy (BMMA) are offering a unique opportunity to young people in the Midlands and UK as a whole to enter the motorcycle manufacturing industry via a new apprenticeship program.
We will give apprentices the opportunity to contribute to the success of the British motorcycle industry and learn a range of new skills.
Our initial partner Norton Motorcycles are looking to create a legacy that will support the long term growth plans for their iconic brand and the British motorcycle manufacturing industry as a whole.
Norton Motorcycles has continued to expand via its global market partners over the last 12 months and will require significant resources to continue this growth and success into the future. Helping to support the development of the next generation of skilled motorcycle engineers is a project they were keen to be associated with and support.
The BMMA will deliver intermediate apprenticeships via a modulated accelerated learning approach. Apprentices will achieve on average 2 units every 6 weeks, with an assessment week at the end of each learning cycle.
Apprentices will be encouraged to learn all aspects of the British motorcycle manufacturing industry, which will include, motorcycle model identification, motorcycle market assessment, development of race platforms, motorcycle and parts logistics and supply chain management alongside the institute of Motor Industry's Motorcycle Maintenance and Repair Qualifications.
Modern Apprenticeships offer anyone aged over 16 paid employment combined with the opportunity to train for jobs across a wide range of sectors. They are an exciting way of gaining skills and qualifications that will help to start a career without having to study full-time.
