Automotive Academy to debut at CV show skills centre

The Automotive Academy will hold a skills centre stand at the Commercial Vehicle Show and Automotive Trade Show in April, in order to tackle skills shortages in the automotive industry.

The skills centre, open from April 25-27, will include hands-on vehicle demonstrations, computer simulators and job advice’.

Academy chief executive Dr Alan Begg said: “The skills centre at the CV show is a great opportunity to show visitors the whole range of career development available to them, whether they are looking for their first job in the industry, or wanting to develop their own skills.

“The UK automotive industry has more volume car, commercial vehicle and small and niche manufacturers than any other EU country - a strong message that needs to be more widely appreciated. We can only maintain our strong position if we have the very best workers who are constantly improving their skills to globally competitive levels. That is what the academy is focussed on achieving.”
