Automotive Skills wants dealer input on skills strategy

Automotive Skills, a division of the Institute of the Motor Industry, will be holding a series of consultations to draft a sector qualifications strategy (SQS) as part of the Government’s plan to overhaul vocational qualifications.

The IMI plans to restructure an SQS which is employer-led and addresses key issues like improvements in technological, management skills and opportunities for career progression.

The SQS project is being driven by Steve Scofield, head of skills development for the IMI’s Automotive Skills division and co-ordinated by independent automotive consultant, Stirling Wood.

Scofield said: “By encouraging businesses to have their say in the development of a fresh qualifications structure, we will ensure that the retail motor industry has a platform for skills development which is fit for purpose in the years ahead.

“We’re looking for some champions across the whole sector to contribute to this process as ultimately, it is aimed at improving business efficiency and profitability.”
