New apprenticeships are being offered as a major employer in Thame prepares to move just across the border into Buckinghamshire.

Aylesbury College and Amersham and Wycombe College merged recently to form Buckinghamshire College Group, and has announced a new partnership with DAF Trucks. The company will be offering new business administration and engineering Apprenticeship opportunities within their organisation.

After almost 30 years in Thame, DAF will relocate to a new purpose-built facility in Haddenham in July 2018.

The new £18 million development totals 53,000sq.ft which includes office space spread over three floors, a state-of-the-art auditorium for DAF Trucks’ customer presentations and an impressive double height entrance / atrium.

From its new location, DAF Trucks will continue its marketing, dealer training, aftersales and back-office functions in support of customers and its DAF dealers in the UK and Ireland.

Tim Keighley, executive director of engagement and business development at Buckinghamshire College Group said: “We are looking forward to working together with DAF Trucks to deliver sustainable apprenticeships in the local area.”
