BMW and Jaguar push training standard

BMW, Jaguar Land Rover and Scania are pioneering efforts to develop a UK-wide quality standard for training in the motor industry.

All three manufacturers along with Thatcham’s accident repair research centre recently received the new national Training Quality Standard (TQS) from skills minister David Lammy, at its launch.

Bristol-based S & B Automotive Academy has since also achieved the standard.

TQS has been introduced to recognise the best organisations delivering training and development to employers and customers.

Dr Adrian Birch, technical training delivery manager at Jaguar Land Rover technical academy, said the assessment process was “very robust”.

He added: “It is too easy to continue what you are doing and assume that it is the right thing to do without an external measure.”
