The mission:
Automotive Skills is about to begin a journey towards the creation of a Sector Skills Agreement (SSA) for the motor industry and therefore WE WANT YOU: employers, training providers, and stakeholders to come on board.

Your influence on the decisions surrounding the development of the SSA means that the outcomes will be representative of YOUR real business needs.

We want to hear everyone's views and this is by no means restricted to any one person from each organisation. Automotive Skills would encourage you to advise your colleagues or other interested individuals to give their views and take part.
