AutoRaise, the Vehicle Repair industry’s charity, is committed to reversing the skills shortage. We work together with Repairers, Training Providers, Colleges, Schools, Work Providers and the Industry Supply Chain to present the Vehicle Repair industry to young people as a genuine alternative to other employment opportunities, further education or university.
BRIT, the “British Repair Industry Trailblazer” group, held their first ever (virtual) meeting on Tuesday 6th October. The group, formed by the merger of the two separate industry trailblazer groups – AutoRaise and The Collision Repair Sector Group – are taking responsibility for the ongoing management and development of five apprenticeship standards; Paint Technician, Panel Technician, MET Technician, Automotive Repair Technician (multiskilled) and Vehicle Damage Assessor.
Two Apprenticeship trailblazer groups, AutoRaise (@AR_Charity) and the Collision Repair Sector group, are set to merge, with the shared vision to create, manage and develop the industry’s technical Apprenticeship Standards.
After hundreds and hundreds of emails, 8 meetings with Institute for Apprenticeships representatives, 2 industry workshops gathering together numerous repairers from around the country, and 1 year of hard work by our team, AutoRaise are absolutely delighted to announce on behalf of the industry Trailblazer group that the Vehicle Damage Assessor Apprenticeship Standard and End Point Assessment Plan has now been approved for delivery.
AutoRaise have received notification that the challenge to the Government on the funding band for the Multi-skilled Apprenticeship Standard has been successful. After a sustained period of lobbying by AutoRaise - the vehicle repair industry charity - the Government have now reviewed their previous decision and agreed to increase the funding by 30%.
