North London Garages Group Training Association has provided training for young people aged 16 years and over wishing to enter the Motor Industry as motor mechanics, body repairers, paint sprayers and vehicle restorers for the UK motor industry for over 45 years.
We are an Investors in People company and an approved assessment centre for the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI), delivering a wide range of Motor Vehicle qualifications, Functional skills and Assessor awards.
Colin Denton NLGGTA Chief Executive:
““As a former motor vehicle apprentice I can appreciate the hard work and dedication each apprentice must show if they want to become a qualified motor vehicle mechanic. The rewards can also be high; Government research shows an apprentice will earn £100,000 more in their working life than the average worker. These figures are staggering and the apprentice incurs no debt because the majority of apprenticeships are fully Government funded”.
With over 45 years’ experience training apprentices NLGGTA has seen more than 2000 apprentices qualify through one or more of their motor vehicle programmes and currently have apprenticeship vacancies.
