A typical working week could be 40 hours Monday to Friday 8.30am – 5.30pm.

All learners will be required to work the minimum apprenticeship duration of 30 hours per week. At least 20% of your working hours will be allocated to ‘off-the-job’ training. We’ll support you to understand the working hours during the recruitment process.


Our Apprenticeship Programme is an excellent way of ensuring we have high-quality people working within our group. We’re looking for ambitious candidates ready to take ownership of their development, work hard to achieve their potential and grow with an ambitious employer.

The Programme lasts up to 36 months and you’ll achieve a nationally recognised qualification as an AutoCare Technician (Level 2) & Motor Vehicle Service and Maintenance Technician (Light Vehicle) Level 3, which includes Electric Vehicle training at Level 1 & 2.

All of our apprentices are employed by Baylis and attend block training at our state-of-the-art Vauxhall Performance Academy in Centre in Coventry.

Block training is complemented by a combination of regular coaching visits from one of our experienced Coaches as well as Virtual Classroom sessions and E-Learning modules.


We’re not looking for the finished article; rather we want to identify those people that are ambitious and demonstrate a willingness to learn, who are excited by the prospect of working with our fantastic, technologically advanced vehicles, and really engage in the recruitment process.

Baylis and the Performance Academy commits to supporting the development of its Apprentices technical, employability, and broader personal development skills, to ensure they can progress and develop their career. That is why when it comes to selecting the right people to become apprentices, it’s as much about attitude as it is about vocational and academic success. That’s why in addition to the qualifications we require from you, we’ll also look for you to possess the following key behaviours. From problem-solving abilities to an enthusiasm for our industry, these are all attributes that will be vital in your role and will be assessed throughout the application process.

  • Willingness to learn
  • Team working/working with others
  • The motivation for the role/automotive and engineering interest
  • Personal responsibility and career ownership
  • Problem-solving
  • Be happy to succeed where others may not
