Final Week for Automotive Apprentice

Survey for Completion by Current Automotive Apprentices

This is the last week for current apprentices to complete the Automotive Skills Shortages survey. The survey takes around 15 minutes, and all participating apprentices will have the opportunity to go into the draw to win a number of prizes.

Dealerships and workshops are struggling to find the trained employees they need to sell, service, and support vehicles. AAAA, AADA and MTAQ recognise we need to grow the pool of apprentices coming into the automotive industry.

We have contracted ACA Research to conduct a survey with automotive apprentices across Australia about their experiences. Insights from this research will be used to identify and promote solutions that can ultimately ensure more apprentices enter the automotive trade and will provide empirical evidence in any approach to government we make, either individually or collectively.

We appreciate all the Dealer Principals and/or Service Managers who have already shared this survey with their current apprentices and encouraged them to respond.
