MITC preaches the benefits of training at Scottish show

The Motor Industry Training Council (MITC) will be highlighting the wealth of opportunities available in training and 'lifelong' learning at the Scottish motor show.

The organisation will be focussing on a series of topics including new standards and qualifications in the sales and parts' sectors aimed at raising their profile; modern apprenticeships and their benefit to business and apprentices; adult 'upskilling' programmes to help existing technicians keep their skills up to date. MITC hopes to pilot specialist courses on electrical and electronic principles with the Scottish Motor Training Association, ProAuto, and the Scottish University for Industry among others.

Sheila McGregor, MITC chief Executive, said: “As well as promoting new initiatives, we are keen to publicise the wealth of opportunity within the sector and the importance of lifelong learning for motor industry employees. Our brief is exceptionally broad - new and used vehicles, parts and accessories, service-maintenance/repair and recovery.”

The MITC will be holding a seminar on Friday November 9 during the show taking place at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre, Glasgow. For more information call Jim Brown, MITC Scotland, on 0131 225 3643 or email at
