IGA COMMITTED TO DRIVING APPRENTICE NUMBERS

Published 29/09/2014 00:00:00 in Press Releases

The Independent Garage Association (IGA) will employ a dedicated person to promote a career in the motor industry to school leavers.

The national campaign will see the IGA’s Trade & Local Authority Liaison Officer aiming to change the consumer perception of the garage trade and show pupils the diverse career opportunities the industry offers.

The Officer will create a programme of engagement with schools and local authorities, alongside garage owners keen to recruit young people into the trade as apprentices.

Stuart James, IGA Director says, “We are dedicated to go the extra mile not only for our members, but also for the future of our industry. It is vital for us to engage with schools nationwide to show that the garage trade offers genuine job prospects.

“Working with our members, the schools initiative will be launched nationwide next month by the IGA to boost the number of school leavers choosing the automotive industry as a career-choice.”
