Leyland Trucks is committed to delivering apprenticeships which add value to both the individual and the company. 

Apprenticeships provide an entry route into the business which allows you to combine both educational studies with practical hands-on experience, whilst earning a salary. Apprentices follow a standard development framework which incorporates practical, evidence based knowledge with academic skills gained within an educational setting.  Our award-winning apprenticeship scheme supports and develops apprentices to their full potential, within a global, market-leading organisation.  

Applications for the 2024 apprenticeships have now closed. Our 2025 applications will open in January 2025.

If you have applied for this year's posts you will hear if you have been successful in progressing to interview by 18th March.  Interviews will be held week commencing 1st - 8th April.

Our resources are here to help you find out more about the apprenticeship schemes at Leyland Trucks. Applications are now closed but a sample application form gives guidance on the questions likely to be asked, and an Information Booklet provides more information about the type of schemes we usually run. A presentation can be used by teachers in schools during career lessons.

Types of apprenticeships 

Depending upon the type of apprenticeship and the work area, the duration of an apprenticeship can be anywhere from 2 – 4 years in length. 

Upon successful completion of your apprenticeship, you will gain a recognised qualification which you can then use to progress your education and career further within the business. 

We continually review the types of advanced and higher apprenticeships which we offer to ensure that we are providing apprentices with the right learning experiences, and to ensure the needs of the business are constantly met. Recently, we have offered apprenticeships within: 

  • Business Administration 
  • Assembly Operator
  • Design Engineering
  • Automotive Engineering
  • Maintenance – Mechanical and Electrical
  • Fabrication and Welding
  • Supply Chain
  • Business Administration

Each of these apprenticeships follow a structured pathway around our business to ensure you gain the most out of the apprenticeship whilst preparing you for future roles within the company.
