The Automotive Cadetship was brand new for 2016 and has been designed and developed in partnership with five specialist industry members. The scheme helps students to gain an insight into the automotive sector within the region.

“I found the experience extremely interesting and fun as there was a large range of tasks to take part in (never a dull moment!) My experience was life changing as I now know how many jobs are available right outside my door step.”

This cadetship programmes help students understand and explore potential career paths into the automotive sector, and are suitable for those aiming to apply for apprenticeships or further study in a STEM subject such as science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Each programme will culminate in a celebration and graduation event where students are required to do a group presentation for members, parents, teachers and peers on their experience.
