Apprenticeships are vital to the motor industry, a source of talent and expertise that will serve businesses in a rapidly changing business environment. For participants, an apprenticeship is a great opportunity to learn highly valued skills whilst gaining on-the-job experience and start them on a rewarding career path. 

“In this context, events like Worldskills Ireland are essential as a shop window to communicate with our young people and to inspire them to be a part of the next generation of employees in the automotive sector. Being able to see skills in action via the various competitions and speaking with companies that are ready to recruit will help attendees to make important decisions for the future. 

“As an industry, we must do all we can to mitigate the current challenges we’re facing, including skills shortages, climate change, and supply chain issues, and a huge part of that, means looking to the next generation and inspiring them to join the automotive sector, which offers real opportunity and career progression.”  

– Brian Cooke, Director General of SIMI
