Copart has become the latest company to partner with Autoraise – the UK vehicle industry charity that works with businesses to boost technical apprenticeships for young people and solve the sector’s skills gap. The new partnership will help support the charity’s work on behalf of the vehicle repair sector, with a specific focus on helping Copart’s own approved repair network to safeguard their own futures through investing in apprenticeships.
Jane Pocock, Managing Director of Copart UK & Ireland, said the partnership was an integral part of their Copart Cares initiative, adding:
“In addition to the partnership agreement, Copart and AutoRaise have already been discussing some great initiatives and opportunities which will make a real difference. We’re excited about bringing these ideas to life over the coming months and sharing them with the automotive community.”
Steve Thompson, Vice-Chair of AutoRaise said:
“Securing Copart’s support as a partner is a fantastic achievement for us and hopefully sends out a strong signal to the industry about the importance of working together as a whole industry to solve our skills crisis.”
Autoraise works with a range of repairers, training providers, work providers, and the industry supply chain to promote the vehicle repair industry to young people at schools and colleges as a rewarding alternative to other employment or further education options.
