More about AutoRaise

Setting the Standard

AutoRaise have a number of affiliations with schools, colleges and independent agencies.

AutoRaise are a charity, set up solely to help the UK vehicle repair industry attract young people into a range of technical apprenticeships.

We promote all recognised Vehicle Repair Apprenticeships, including the traditional single-skilled path, the Accident Repair Technician (Multi-skilled) and VDA Apprenticeships, to present the body repair industry as a realistic alternative to other employment opportunities, further education or university.

When a young person registers their interest in becoming part of our industry, AutoRaise contacts a number of businesses in the candidate’s geographical
area to enable the best chance of being offered employment in the sector. We make initial contact with potential employers and receive their confirmation that they would like an introduction to the candidate. Once confirmation is agreed, the candidate is put in direct contact with the potential employer to interview and continue or cease the process based on their needs at the time and their own judgement of suitability.
