From education to employment

The automotive skills shortage is at crisis point

To sustain the automotive industry long-term, a pipeline of newly qualified talent who are industry-ready is needed.

Talent Recharge is a brand new, free to attend event which will bring together senior leaders across the automotive industry with the education sector to drive forward the skills shortage conversation and create strategies to support the creation of a pipeline of future talent.

Keynote speaker is former McLaren Formula 1 team mechanic and seasoned automotive broadcaster, Marc ‘Elvis’ Priestly. Attendees will also hear from prominent speakers from the automotive industry who will offer a valuable insight into the rapid pace of change of the sector, and what skill-sets are needed to contribute to the industry’s future.

There will also be demonstrations of current and expected automotive technology and software trends that will support future investment decisions to improve learning environments.

The event will also include refreshments, networking opportunities and the chance to participate in interactive workshop sessions.

Already, people from across the education sector, from FE Colleges with an automotive offering, Heads of Motor Vehicle departments, schools and people who run apprenticeship programmes have secured their place at Talent Recharge.

With 180 spaces available, seats are filling up fast for the event which will run from 1:30pm until 5pm. However, there are still a few spots available to people who are responsible for the automotive offering within their education establishment.

Hosted by Autotech Group, the inaugural Talent Recharge event will be held within the world-class surroundings of Red Bull MK-7 in Milton Keynes on Wednesday 23rd March at 1:30pm.
