How do we solve the auto industry skills shortage?

From the 2021 Capricorn State of the Nation webinar series.

In State of the Nation 2021 Members told us finding qualified technicians is one of the biggest challenges they faced—and it was the industry’s top challenge overall. The problem is particularly acute for panel and paint, tyre and suspension, and larger/chain workshops.

So, what can we do about it?

What can Members do to attract and retain the best talent that’s out there? And what role do apprentices play in ensuring a pipeline of talent into the future?

David Fraser is joined by AAAA's Lesley Yates for a chat about combating the skills shortage and encouraging a new generation of qualified technicians into auto.

We cover:

  • What’s causing the skills crisis
  • What the industry can do about it
  • Actions workshop owners can take
  • Ensuring the pipeline of future talent.

It’s filled with useful tips and advice. We hope you’ll enjoy it.
