Last week marked the last of our Steer Apprentice Skills competitions, for Automotive Body Repair and Automotive Refinishing hosted at EMTEC Colleges and 3M.

We had the pleasure of welcoming apprentices from across the group, ready to showcase their talents, as they prepare for their End-Point Assessments (EPAs) and potentially the IMI World Skills. It's not just about the competition; it's about elevating standards, boosting confidence, honing problem-solving abilities, enhancing planning and time management skills, and elevating the levels of expertise in our future professionals.

The judges were impressed by the high standards maintained throughout the competition, highlighting the dedication and hard work of all the apprentices. Congratulations to all the apprentices who participated - your hard work, determination, and passion have not gone unnoticed. You are all truly MEASURABLY DIFFERENT. We look forward to announcing the overall winners in March.

Our competition could not have been possible without the generous support of our event sponsors and the invaluable insights of our judges. A heartfelt, thank you, to each one of them for making this event a resounding success.
