Published:  15 March, 2013

THE search for the UK's best young automotive talent is now underway, with the opening of the Institute of the Motor Industry's (IMI's) SkillAuto competition.  Young people will compete in the fields of Autobody, Autopaint and Autotech for a place at the SkillAuto final, which takes place at the Skills Show in November.  In 2012 over 100,000 young people visited the Skills Show at the NEC, which provides a platform for the best of the nation's young talent to compete in their chosen fields, as well as giving visitors the chance to have a go at new skills and gain careers information and advice.

Steve Nash, the IMI's Chief Executive, said: "SkillAuto is a vital tool for placing the spotlight on the importance of skills in the motor industry.  The young people that reach the final will represent exactly the high calibre of apprentices the automotive sector is crying out for, as we face the challenges of advancing technology and increasing demands of customers.
