About Us


Skillnet was established in 1997 and was one of the first training providers in the motor industry to achieve the prestigious Training Quality Standard award in 2008.

We operate nationally and offer a full range of training services to employers and employees. Each year we manage the training for more than 4,000 people.

Across our national range of training centres we offer excellent facilities for light vehicle and heavy vehicle technical training. We also offer a full range of non-technical training courses in sales, customer service, administration and parts. If you are just leaving school we can help you find your first employer. If you already have work experience we can help you access further training or look for your next career move.

Each year we work with more than 20,000 people looking for Apprenticeships and other full- time roles.


In automotive we are proud to deliver the national Apprenticeship programmes for Ford Motor Company, DAF Trucks  and Isuzu. In addition we deal with hundreds of independent garages and repair businesses across the UK. We also work with hundreds of employers in logistics and other industries that value people with the real skills that Apprenticeships bring.
