For the first time in our history... we released a programme specifically aimed for students at Automechanika Birmingham!
On 8th June, day three of the trade event, Automechanika Birmingham and Autotech Academy hosted a series of sessions aimed at inspiring and educating students to help arm them with the skills and knowledge they need for the future.
Gavin White from Autotech Academy, part of Autotech Group, opened the session with a welcome address. Followed by a presentation of success stories from other professionals on how they got into the industry and ways to ensure a long and thriving career.
The day featured a structured tour of the exhibition, involving a skills competition via a treasure hunt, with lots of prizes up for grabs. There was also be a networking lunch to offer students the opportunity to engage with other like-minded peers and meet industry employers.
The last session of the day focused on the technology of the future where the students could find out about the latest trends, technologies and innovations in the sector.
Students had the opportunity to win lots of prizes including a £1000 apple voucher for answering key questions about information they learnt through the day!
