ILC Corporate Partner GT Motive has partnered with School of Thought to help support, train, and attract young people into the automotive industry.
As part of the collaboration, GT Motive will offer students from Chesterfield College, Cardiff Vale College, Sandwell College and Coleg Gwent the opportunity to use its estimating platform as part of their learning.
Martyn Rowley, Business Development Manager at GT Motive, said, “We’re proud to be able to support the future talents of the automotive and repair industry. By providing them access to our estimating platform it gives them a view to the modern solutions that are available to repairs.
“We have been inspired by the work School of Thought has done to support the future of the automotive industry, and we just wanted to strengthen their offering. Hopefully our small contribution will encourage more young people to begin their career within our industry and will give those training the opportunity to see the tools that would be available to them in the real world.”
By providing access to GT Global technology will allow students to work with the estimating system as if working on a ‘real-life’ motor claim repairs and receive accurate estimations and total loss valuations. The platform will also be used in lesson planning to make the courses more modern.
Dave Reece, Co-founder at School of Thought, said, “The biggest challenge currently facing the automotive industry is staff shortages within the repair network. The non for profit, School of Thought was created to tackle this issue by attracting young people into the automotive industry and to nurture the future talents of the next generation of the industry.
“Our partnership with GT Motive strengthens our opportunity to provide young people the prospects to learn, earn and be successful.”Tweet
