The industries we work with can be complex and challenging but this need not deter anyone from being interested in working in them. Skillnet welcomes applications from people with disabilities and we aim to make all of our services and premises accessible wherever possible and practical.

If we don't think we can help you directly we will work hard to refer you to people with specialist skills who can. Our commitment to widening participation in the industry amongst groups who have been under-represented so far is real, so please contact us.


Traditionally the Automotive industry has not recruited large numbers of women to train as Service Technicians but that's changing fast. More and more women are training to repair vehicles in all sectors and at Skillnet we are keen to train more.

If you are thinking about joining the motor industry, talk to us. We can offer you the opportunity to meet employers in the industry to see if it's likely to be the right career choice for you. If you do decide to train as an Apprentice we will support you all the way through your qualification.

Skillnet has appointed  female mentors to work with every one of our female Apprentices - so there is always someone you can go to if you have any problems with any aspect of your training.
