As well as providing engineering excellence to the biggest and the best, Babcock delivers technical training and learner-directed development systems for some of the leading companies around the world.


We’ve partnered with Volkswagen Group, to deliver a range of Technical Training and Apprenticeship programmes to the company’s UK workforce. In 2014 we were given responsibility for the Design, Delivery and Assessment of Commercial training, Network Recruitment Services, Operations, Administration and Project Management across the entire VWG UK operation. This successful rebid was helped to victory by some of our graduate trainees – people like Jonathon.


The aim within the contract is to significantly improve learner outcomes, cost to franchise and speed to competence, in particular by introducing new e-learning tools – such as our Blended Learning Roadmap. We provide a fully managed training service that’s commercially, culturally and operationally aligned to the needs of all VWG brands, including Audi, Volkswagen Passenger Cars, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, SEAT and SKODA.


In total we deliver training equivalent to 52,000 delegate days per year for VWG – and we’re expecting this to increase to approximately 70,000 days during 2016.


So as experts in the art and science of training, you can be sure that Babcock offers its graduates the very best in development opportunities.

Babcock doesn't often sing its own praises. But we've built up such a reputation behind the scenes that big companies regard our training as world class.
