Back in pictures on our 7th edition of CAR Avenue Apprentices' Diploma Awards. In 2019, 177 interns were on contract across all of our sites and across all automotive brands. Of the 30 apprentice graduates, all are employed in the CAR Avenue network or continue their training: 17 permanent positions, two temporary positions and eleven apprenticeship training contracts. Despite the downward trend in apprenticeships in automotive specialties, CAR Avenue trained more apprentices this year than in previous years.
During this ceremony, the three apprentices who obtained the best results during this year as well as their tutors were also rewarded. Academic results are taken into account, but also good manners in companies and at the training center.
Each year, around ten days of recruiting apprentices (mechanics, bodywork and painters) are organized in several CAR Avenue dealerships, during which more than 200 candidates present themselves. The latter pass written tests and are received by a jury in individual interviews, then with their parents (for minors). In 2019 we hired around 60 apprentices during these selection days. Our Group has always attached great importance to the initial training of its future employees. To date we see several generations succeeding each other; the oldest of our collaborators rub shoulders with the apprentices whom they trained several years ago, who today in turn train the new learners we welcome. The CAR Avenue Group is therefore part of a civic and civic approach to training young people from the geographic area in which it is located.
