Case for Change
Automotive accessory fitter is an established job role that has continued to see sustained market demand and growth. However feedback and research indicates that there is a current and predicted future skills shortage. The job role requires skills and knowledge that are distinct from related automotive trades such as electricians and paint and panel technicians. These skills are yet to be represented within a specific qualification or existing units of competency. There is a need to create entry-level training pathways into accessory fitting which could also assist with other automotive trades, such as repairers and electricians.
PwC’s Skills for Australia is in the process of consulting with a wide range of stakeholders relevant to this sub-sector of the automotive industries.
The Case for Change for this project is available to be downloaded below.
