AutoRaise standard signed off

AutoRaise has achieved sign-off for its multi-skilled apprenticeship standard end point assessment plan.

This means that the AutoRaise team can now engage with training providers to plan delivery of the standard.

Chris Oliver, AutoRaise trustee, said, ‘We are very excited that we can continue building the national training provider footprint for the multi-skilled apprenticeship standard. We are in dialogue with many providers but this sign-off will enable us to accelerate those discussions to the point where delivery of the standard becomes a reality in time for the start of the next academic year.’

The multi skilled approach has been adopted by numerous repairers up and down the country and a number of training organisations have already committed to deliver this to their repairer clients.

AutoRaise said that this, coupled with active interest from a couple of vehicle manufacturers, should well and truly place this standard, which was created by repairers for repairers, in the middle of the vehicle repair sector.

Bob Linwood, AutoRaise CEO, said, ‘It will also underpin the AutoRaise charity’s approach to support employers’ recruitment and development of young people to help address the skills crisis.’

AutoRaise says there will be a short delay as it challenges its allocated funding band of £9,000 but says, ‘with the precedent of successful challenges in our sector already set, this is expected to be a formality.’
