Automotive Academy to debut at CV Show Skills Centre

The Automotive Academy is to make its debut in the Skills Centre at the heart of this year’s Commercial Vehicle Show and Automotive Trade Show at the NEC.The Skills Centre, open from Tuesday 25 to Thursday 27 April, will include a host of hands-on vehicle demonstrations, computer simulators and job advice. The Academy is joining other firms and training organisations in supporting this initiative to tackle skills shortages in the automotive manufacturing and engineering, road transport, logistics and aftermarket industries.The Academy will offer a range of advice and guidance on its validated and approved courses that are available to all levels of automotive manufacturing, from shop floor to boardroom and from SMEs to vehicle manufacturers. It will aim to demonstrate in a hands-on, interactive manner, the benefits in quality, cost and delivery performance that can be achieved from its range of lean manufacturing training programmes.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. There are still tremendous opportunities for employment and advancement in the UK. 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.’Skills Centre details can be found at: www.cvshow.com/skills.htmClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more
