Grade-A results?

Time 1:34 pm, August 14, 2008

34588-a-msl.jpgGCSE results are out next week. Are you prepared for the (hoped-for) onslaught of kids keen to work in the industry?

The RMIF certainly is, and we reckon it’s a great opportunity for you.

Decisions will be made on the back of the results, and school-leavers will be seriously weighing up their options. They may be contacting you for advice, particularly if you run apprenticeship schemes.

Do you best to attract and appeal to them, despite the current worries in the business. Such people will be the lifeblood of the industry – and certainly, if you offer a structured training path, they could be your expert technicians or top salespeople of the future.

The RMIF has already been preparing, through its ReMIT training arm. The national campaign launched at last month’s British International Motor Show with a recruitment drive.

As ReMIT Chief Executive Rob Foulston explained: ‘We have been working with schools for the last few months to promote the benefits of a career in the motor industry.’

‘Following the release of GCSE exam results next week, many young people will be looking seriously towards their future. For many this means a motor industry apprenticeship.’
