IMI registers 5,000 apprentices

By autotech-nath on September 9, 2019

The Institute of the Motor Industry, IMI, is continuing to work with the sector to address the skills gap and has now reached 5,000 registered apprentices for end point assessment. 

The IMI currently offers 14 different Apprenticeship Standards, recently launching three new ones for automotive repair professionals. 

Mark Armitage, Head of Membership Products & Services, said: “As motoring technology evolves, with demand for lower emissions, connected vehicles and alternative fuel vehicles, the skills gap continues to widen. This issue must be urgently addressed. The IMI is focused on helping businesses engage with young people and raise the quality of vocational training in the automotive sector and create a vibrant and sustainable pipeline of talent for the future. And, as the next generation of workers head to their schools for A-Level and GCSE results, with career options front of mind, it is vital that parents, schools and their future employers understand the genuine life-time benefits of vocational learning.”
