Bibb.de (Germany): News: Building apprentices’ skills in the workplace: Car service in Germany, the UK and Spain

The paper published at the London School of Economics is the result of an international collaboration between Hilary Steedman (former member of BIBB's scientific advisory board) and researchers from BIBB.

CVER's Hilary Steedman and colleagues have been looking at training in one area of the automotive sector  Car Service is central to the supply chain of the wider automotive sector, identified as a leading performer in the UK government’s 2017 Industrial Strategy. We asked Car Service employers in Germany, UK and Spain about skill shortages and their experience of training apprentices in the workplace. Car Service technicians are trained in apprenticeship in Germany and the UK. The UK Advanced Apprenticeship and German 3-year Apprenticeship aim for a similar set of standards. In Spain, technicians are trained in full-time College courses which include a short period of work experience. In all three countries most firms are small.
