Have a look at what Joe from Scania GB has to say:

Meet Joe – Technician apprentice of the year award winner (2023):
Joe started at Scania in 2020, with no previous experience. He is now a fully qualified HGV technician and has just won the ‘Apprentice of the Year’ award.
“From the start, I was made to feel part of the family, Scania paid for all the apprentices throughout the country to go on a team bonding week, completing fun challenges, building teamwork, and learning leadership skills.
When I heard about the ‘apprentice of the year’ award my goal was always to win it. I have learnt so much throughout my 3 years in the workshop, from the course and from all the experienced technicians around me.
I have two new goals now… to help our next apprentice win apprentice of the year and to develop my own skills further by entering the ‘IMI’ awards.
I would highly recommend an apprenticeship with Scania, to anyone interested in becoming an HGV technician”.
