New Partnership with Education Charity, Future First

AutoRaise lifts lid on career in the vehicle repair industry for young people through partnership with education charity.

AutoRaise is striving to improve opportunities for more young people by giving them exclusive insight into a career in the vehicle repair industry.

Through a new partnership with education charity Future First, AutoRaise will offer state school and college students the support, advice and encouragement they need to consider a career in diverse areas of the vehicle repair industry, allowing businesses across the sector to connect with up-and-coming talent.

By recording videos, writing blogs, sharing advice and volunteering in workshops, employees from across the industry will use their skills, knowledge, and experiences to guide young people from schools all over the country.

It can be difficult for young students to imagine life after school or college and Future First is the only UK charity helping young people in state schools and colleges broaden their horizons by connecting them with relatable role models.

Speaking about the partnership, Steve Thompson, AutoRaise Vice-Chair said: “For me it is quite simple, we need to break the barriers in the industry by getting in front of young people. This partnership with Future First will ensure we capture our future talent and hopefully inspire them to join this great industry when they leave school”.

Lorraine Langham, Future First CEO, added: “It’s so important that students from all backgrounds are supported and inspired to consider as many options as possible for the future.

“Being connected to organisations such as AutoRaise, and employees across their member businesses, often opens up a whole new world of opportunity for them.

“Many young people – particularly those from less privileged backgrounds – may never have considered a career in vehicle repair, and may not appreciate the progression opportunities that exist in the sector. The chance to meet and learn from someone who has gone on to succeed in the sector could inspire them to follow a similar path.”
