Apprenticeships at our bus parts company
Our bus parts company actively supports apprenticeships at the grassroots level through a number of measures. These include organising training sessions with OEM bus part suppliers such as Knorr-Bremse, Haldex and Wabco for customers including Arriva, Go Ahead, London United and Metroline, as well as the provision of training materials to support engineering apprentices. We also support the recognition of apprentice achievement through sponsorship of Arriva’s Apprentice of the Year and Metroline’s annual Apprentice of the Year award.
As a major provider of coach parts UK, Imperial Engineering understands that employees who feel valued are more motivated to perform better. Investing in career progression is not only a productive force for staff, it can help managers ensure that the business is well equipped with the right structure, skills and people to meet an improving business climate.
Bus part suppliers with the right skill set
Imperial Engineering believes strongly that the multi-skilled engineer will be in great demand in the years ahead. Historically, the bus and coach sector employed bodywork, electrical and mechanical engineers. Bus companies and bus part suppliers are now expecting engineers to possess a combination of skills. With the amount of electronics on vehicles advancing rapidly, individuals who are technically competent in diagnostics and programming components will be in high demand. Such skills will become a major currency, so there needs to be a seismic shift in the UK’s approach to careers and vocational training if perceptions are to be changed. Coach parts UK supplier Imperial Engineering will continue to do its bit to help achieve this.
