The Nissan Apprentice Academy aims to support the creation of 100 jobs over 5 years to help future-proof the motor industry.
INNOVATION THAT EXCITES
In 2015, Nissan Ireland Chief Executive James McCarthy announced the launch of the ‘Nissan Apprentice Academy’. The Academy has been established to develop the ‘technicians of tomorrow’ and our unique apprenticeship programme offers the next generation of technicians, the opportunity to work with Nissan’s newest and most advanced motoring technologies.
The Nissan Apprentice Academy offers you the opportunity to pursue a career with a truly exciting brand that is leading the way in motoring innovation.
About the Programme
What makes this advanced apprenticeship programme innovative is Nissan Ireland’s additional specialised training along with the continuous guidance and encouragement of all academy apprentices who are employed by our Dealer network.
On successful completion of the standard SOLAS apprenticeship programme, the top scoring graduates will be given the opportunity to further their career within the Nissan Ireland Dealer Network. In addition, we will offer the highest performing graduate a scholarship into D.I.T Automotive third-level degree courses and advancement within the Nissan Academy, where they will receive Nissan Master Technician training (including entry into NISTEC Nissan’s world-wide skills competition).
Each year, the overall highest performing and top scoring graduate will have the opportunity to become a 'Nissan Generation Next Ambassador' and will be provided with the use of a brand new, taxed and insured Nissan to drive for a year. Some T&C’s apply.
The Nissan Apprentice Academy will give you access to learning environments and resources that will support your development and help you influence and achieve your individual goals.
