The Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) is encouraging the UK’s best young technicians to take part in this year’s SkillAuto competition.
Apprentices in autobody, autopaint and autotech are invited to take an online test to determine who will go forward to the live heats in April and June.
Jaguar Land Rover will host the autotech heats at their state-of-the-art Training Centre in Warwick, while 3M will host the autopaint heats at its new facility in Atherstone.
The final will again take place at the Skills Show in November.
IMI chief executive, Steve Nash, commented: “SkillAuto is a vital tool for placing the spotlight on the importance of skills in the motor industry.
“The young people that reach the final will represent exactly the high calibre of apprentices the automotive sector is crying out for, as we face the challenges of advancing technology and increasing demands of customers.”
