At The ARC Group we are extremely passionate about investing in future talent and encouraging young people to go for a career in the industry. We work in partnership with the S&B Automotive Academy in Bristol and have developed our own three year apprenticeship scheme which we are very proud of. Our candidates learn all aspects of vehicle body repair and refinishing to give them a broad understanding of the industry, with the option to specialise as their career evolves.
