Theme 12: The need for close dialogue between employers, providers and other stakeholders
Many of the current and likely future skill requirements within the automotive sector are quite complex. It is also the case that apprenticeships need to balance the need for equipping apprentices with the skills required for successful careers in the automotive industry with the need to meet employers’ specific changing skill requirements. This highlights the importance of not only understanding these requirements in detail, but the need for a close and continued dialogue between employers in the sector together with schools, colleges, universities and other providers of apprenticeship training to ensure the apprenticeship offer evolves in line with these changing skills requirements.
