Training tomorrow’s engineers
“This is a really exciting time for Arriva’s apprenticeship programme. We can design a course that allows our apprentices to learn and practise their skills in a genuine Arriva environment.”

This year, we invested over £200,000 to set up Apprentice Academies in Derby and St Helens to train young people and those wanting a career change to become our future bus engineers.
Centres of excellence
The academies will become a centre of excellence, with opportunities for established engineers to improve skills through Continuous Professional Development training and bespoke courses created by Arriva and vehicle manufacturers.
Devising new programmes
We’re also stepping up to the Government’s request to devise apprenticeship programmes by helping design the new national Bus and Coach Apprenticeship Programme.
