Sector: Automotive


The public sector has a dual role in both the promotion and support of the UK automotive sector, as well as being a major procurer of fleet vehicles, such as within the emergency services. UK local authorities alone operate around 50,000 vehicles. This generates a range of support needs, covering vehicle support needs, maintenance, and driving standards. Alongside this, there are a range of programmes geared to support automotive manufacturers and retailers, developing their workforces, and assisting their growth.

Mercedes-Benz Apprenticeship Academy

We supported Remit Resourcing, a specialist automotive training provider, to develop proposals in response to a recommissioning exercise by Mercedes-Benz UK Ltd for their Apprenticeship Academy programme. The Academy model trains apprentices working at Mercedes-Benz dealerships across the UK. We provided both written and graphic input to Remit’s proposal, detailing past expertise and case studies as well as a future operating model.

Institute for the Motor Industry (IMI)

We provided support to IMI, the Sector Skills Council for the automotive sector, developing project applications to the former Employer Investment Fund (EIF) administered by the UK Commission for Employment & Skills (UKCES). Building on our support, IMI progressed to secure £3m in EIF funding, across six different programmes, geared to support a suitably qualified sector workforce to meet future demand and improve economic performance.
