Schaeffler call for garages to star in apprentice videos

Schaeffler is urging garages to step into the spotlight and take part in a new series of videos highlighting the benefits of apprenticeships.

The first of its REPXPERT ‘wrenches and wisdom’ series of videos, filming of which is scheduled to start in the autumn, aims to reflect real-life stories and experiences.

The first series of videos will tour UK workshops, reflecting on the journeys of those who have made a successful career in the garage industry and seeking valuable insights on how to best attract fresh talent.

Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket UK sales and marketing director, Matthew Selby, said yesterday: “We are calling on garages to register their interest in participating and sharing their unique perspectives.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity to showcase your personal journey into the trade… or to offer innovative ideas on how to engage and inspire the next generation of automotive technicians.”

Aftermarket reported last month that Schaeffler had hailed its first national REPXPERT conference for UK garages as a success.

More than 200 attended Coventry’s Manufacturing Training Centre for the event, which was designed to capitalise on the company’s regional REPXPERT Academy Live events.
