Help us find the one?

Have you got an apprentice that could be crowned the next UK Champion?  The IMI has begun the hunt to find the best automotive technicians in the country.

SkillAuto competitions provide the platform to showcase the quality of training you deliver and help demonstrate to the general public the high level of skills and knowledge needed to work in the automotive industry. They are a great way to improve the confidence, ability and aptitude of your students as well as providing them with vital experience in working under pressure in a competitive environment.

Top scorers from the online tests which are open now and until the 15th March 2012 will be invited to participate in live practical heats around the country to find national and regional champions with the potential to go on to a live final staged at a Skills Festival event planned for next October where the UK champions in Autotech, Autobody and Autopaint will be crowned!

Hear what apprentices, employers and providers have to say at www.autocity.org.uk/skillauto.

Entrants must have no more than 3 years experience including training and a desire to be the best in their industry.

They can enter online now for the 2012 rounds of the competitions by visiting www.autocity.org.uk/skillauto and have the chance of winning two tickets to the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed weekend.
