Ford Motor Company have announced its intention of constructing a new state of the art training facility at its site in Daventry in the UK and have reportedly, infused an investment of millions of pounds in the project. The new facility will be built in addition to the massive Parts Distribution Centre (PDC) that is already there and will become the company’s new training centre of excellence in the UK. 

The new installation will merge the capabilities of two existing Ford colleges - the Technical Training Centre located separately at Daventry and the Henry Ford College in Loughborough, which imparts training to technicians, sales staff and management throughout Ford’s national dealer network. The new centre will replace the existing two facilities to become one single unit and is scheduled to be ready by 2015. The upcoming training centre will also deliver courses to adult learners up to Diploma and Masters degree level, as well as students taking the highly coveted Ford Masters Apprenticeship program, through which 450 new apprentices are recruited into the Ford dealer network every year. Furthermore, Ford has also announced a series of engineering and business apprenticeship programmes, including a newly-established Higher Apprenticeship in IT. 

The said facility will feature classrooms, a 200-seat auditorium and a vehicle showroom area, in addition to a lounge and a restaurant. The design and interiors of the facility will reflect the style and taste of the newly revamped Ford dealer showrooms in the UK, which includes the ‘Hello’ and ‘Relax’ areas in the reception. 

Mr Jon Wellsman, director of Ford Customer Service Division said, “With the latest Ford vehicles now demonstrating technology leadership, it is important that our dealer teams receive the highest quality technical and product training. This world-class new facility will enable us to do just that.”
