The National Association of Bodyshops (NAB) has welcomed news from The Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) on their call to action doubts from the automotive sector about employing young people and to future proof businesses by hiring apprentices. 

Frank Harvey, Head of NAB commented, ‘NAB applauds the IMI in commissioning this piece of work, and would encourage the education establishment and employers to seriously consider apprenticeships within the automotive sector as a viable alternative to continued academia.

“NAB believes that as vehicle technology increases, both in terms of construction materials and techniques, and advancements in active and passive safety and control systems, greater investment is needed.

“As an industry we need to recruit, train and develop now, the skill set needed for the future”.
