Next generation technicians gearing up for the SkillAuto final

by

AutobodyThe 19 SkillAuto finalists are making their final preparations ahead of the battle to see who will be crowned the winner.

The young competitors will face off in one of three fields, Autopaint, Autobody and Autotech in front of more than 100,000 visitors at the Skills Show, at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham in November.

The youngsters are expected to face a number of challenges under time pressures in workshop conditions, but also face the media and the scrutiny of the judges in their quest to be the best technician in their field.

David Massie, the Institute of the Motor Industry’s Skills Competition Manager, said: “The young people who have reached the final have a great opportunity to become the best in their field and represent the high caliber of apprentices the motor industry needs as role models for future generations of automotive professionals.”

The Skills Show is not solely home for the SkillAuto competition but is a showcase of the career opportunities opened to next generation, and for those seeking career advice.

Massie adds: “SkillAuto is vital for placing the spotlight on career opportunities in the motor industry. Many people are still unaware of the complexity of modern vehicle construction and refinishing and the high level of skills required to repair to them.”
