Autoclenz Managing Director, Martin Ward, attended Burton and South Derbyshire College on Thursday to take part in a visit from Alex Burghart, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Apprenticeships and Skills, to discuss partnerships with the College that meet current and future skills shortages.
In May 2021, Autoclenz partnered the College to give Automotive Students the opportunity to gain industry standard valeting skills and qualifications, with the introduction of a new Valeting Centre, replicating a genuine automotive workshop and valet bay.
The partnership was introduced to address a shortfall in labour and a demand in the valeting industry for skilled workers. The qualifications will enable students the chance to gain valuable skills and provide the industry with a new generation of valeting professionals.
Martin Ward, Managing Director at Autoclenz said: “Never has there been a more poignant time to introduce professional valeting to a wider audience and to help teach youngsters the practical skills that can start them on a journey into a career in the automotive industry. We are proud and privileged to be working alongside such a forward-thinking college, with the collective aim of helping students gain a meaningful, practical qualification that we know will be of great benefit to them and the industry in the coming years.”
