Vehicle Technican shortage by 2030

This video on BBC News from The IMI is to highlight the shortage of vehicle technicians currently today and in future years. Importantly a large majority of current technicians are not EV – electric vehicle trained or qualified to work safely on this newer technology.

It’s not fully certain why the motor trade is not an attractive place to the younger generation of today, possibly as manual labour is not promoted in schools, who knows?

Though post brexit and covid Britain seems to be short staffed in every sector at the moment. Fortunately here at Burch Motor Works all our technicians are trained and qualified to IMI Level 4 to work electric vehicle live systems safely.

Along with apprentices and new recruits coming through to fill the shortage in our industry. More about our new guys in the New Year

Thanks for reading & watching.
