Virtually every day reveals some new effect of COVID-19 on everyday life and on the automotive and associated industries. The latest gloomy news comes from the Department for Education, which has focussed the spotlight on the impact of the pandemic on apprentice recruitment. And the automotive sector appears to be one of the hardest hit. Across all sectors, apprenticeship starts in June 2020 fell by 57 per cent, compared to the same time period in 2019.
Rema Tip Top Automotive UK is supporting investment into young apprentices via the donation of new Corghi tyre changer and wheel balancing machinery to Nottingham’s Remit Group. The NTDA Tyre Industry Award winning supplier of tyre repair materials and tyre service equipment has also provided a comprehensive tyre repair consumable, tools and equipment package in aid of the training centre’s Specialist Tyre Apprentice Programme.
Ten years after its inception, Autotech Recruit has started the new decade by announcing an enhancement to its management team and a company rebrand, which will cement its status as the leading employment solutions provider for the automotive industry.
