The MTI will highlight the importance of new skills that address the needs of Industry 4.0 as the latest in low-carbon innovation is revealed at the Cenex-LCV technology show. The show, which is the UK’s most high-profile low carbon vehicle event, brings together industry experts and UK decision makers, including representatives from government, to discuss the significant challenges facing the automotive sector. For the first time, the event will be held entirely online on 18 and 19 November 2020 and will include an exhibition of technology and seminar programme.
Lisa Bingley, Director of Operations at the MTI said, “Developments in low carbon technology inevitably mean the decline of the internal combustion engine as it currently exists. In order to take advantage of the significant future opportunities within the sector, businesses will need to upskill their workforce and invest now in training and development.
“Lightweight technology, traction batteries, traction electric motors and power electronics are essential to the future of vehicle propulsion. As we see innovation increasing within the industry, educators need to step up and keep ahead of skills demands to ensure that their teams’ skills are fit for purpose.”
The MIRA Technology Institute was developed to provide an innovative solution to the problem of skills shortages within the rapidly changing automotive sector. Working with partners in industry and education who collaborate to teach CPD and accredited programmes, the MTI offers a full spectrum of training opportunities from apprenticeships to bespoke and commercial courses for businesses from across the sector, from SMEs to large organisations.
As a dedicated resource for the automotive industry, the training is highly relevant and can be accessed by the full range and size of businesses within the sector including Tier 1 automotive businesses within the supply chain, and major international corporates.
Lisa Bingley added, “The MTI is perfectly placed to help organisations address the skills to support a low carbon future, identify the right training partners and find a clear path through the red tape. I am looking forward to talking visitors at Cenex-LCV and urge anybody who is interested to register and talk to us about the available options.
