AKS Renault in Yeovil - investing in workshop staff
AKS Renault is investing in the future of its workshop by paying for its newest member of staff to undertake an apprenticeship scheme for technicians.
Will Mulder, aged 21, from Yeovil, has started a four-year training programme with the dealership on Addlewell Lane meaning that he’ll benefit from classroom-based instruction at one of Renault’s dedicated centres as well as on-the-job training.
Alongside Will, the workshop has also this month welcomed fully-trained technician Tony Warren, aged 24, who has experience with other manfucturers.

Anton Szulc, managing director at AKS Renault, said: “The idea of offering someone an apprenticeship may sound a little old-fashioned, but the Renault training programme is a fantastic opportunity for a young technician and offers an NVQ qualification with solid workshop experience.”
“Staff training has always been a priority at AKS and is essential in ensuring that we offer our customers the very highest standards of customer care. While some businesses might cut back on staff training during tough times, we think that it’s more important than ever to invest in apprenticeships during the current economic climate.
“Will is getting on extremely well so far and the apprenticeship has proved to be very beneficial to him and also to the team here in the workshop. The Renault training course is excellent, giving a thorough training in all the skills required to become a technician working with the Renault brand.”
