Automotive

Skillinvest can support your workforce requirements whether your business sells, services, or maintains a fleet of vehicles, plant and mobile equipment. We can offer a local service to local businesses and a statewide service to businesses whose activities span Victoria.

Apprenticeships and Traineeships

For three decades, our experienced Apprenticeship Consultants have been supporting dealerships, shire councils, and fleet operators to provide apprenticeships and traineeships under group training employment arrangements. Our extensive experience includes supporting:

  • Apprenticeships in:
    • automotive servicing - from small engines and outdoor power equipment, to light and heavy vehicles, road transport, mobile plant, and agricultural vehicles and plant.  
    • body work - panel beating and spray painting. 
  • Traineeships in:
    • vehicle sales
    • spare parts interpreting
    • management
    • frontline management

For young people aspiring to trade apprenticeships, we actively encourage them to start training and skills development while at secondary school.  In our experience, students who transition successfully into full-time trade apprenticeships have usually started training while at school through VET in Schools or a structured work placement or school-based apprenticeship, or a combination of all three.

We can support your business to provide a school-based apprenticeship. They’re a great pathway into full-time apprenticeships and well-established in secondary schools throughout Victoria.
