Project DRIVES

Enginuity is proud to be the official UK partner for the European Union-funded DRIVES (Development and Research on Innovative Vocational Education Skills) project. The project has run successfully since January 2018 and will continue to do so until December 2021, amalgamating 24 specially selected partners from 11 EU countries.

The purpose of DRIVES is to deliver human capital solutions to supply chain SMEs through the establishment of an Automotive Sector Skills Alliance. The project covers all levels of the value chain (vehicle production, automotive suppliers and sales and aftermarket services) through:

  • Mapping and assessing the skills gaps and future skills needed in the automotive sector in the coming decade
  • Developing and maintaining an Automotive Skills Strategic Roadmap
  • Improving existing and proven skills frameworks across the EU
  • Enabling mutual recognition of awards between formal and informal education schemes
  • Implementing a common European automotive skills umbrella through integrating of existing skills frameworks
  • Creating an EU-wide apprenticeship marketplace

Apprenticeship Survey

Your opportunity to influence future apprenticeships supporting the European Automotive sector

We are seeking feedback from you and other key stakeholders to help inform specific policy recommendations on Apprenticeships. The feedback you provide will be included in an Apprenticeship Marketplace Report update that will be presented to the EU Commission, through the DRIVES project, at the end of the year. While the United Kingdom is no longer part of the EU, the Apprenticeship programmes across the 4 countries in the UK, are sufficiently advanced and robust that other EU countries and the EU itself will benefit from the observations and feedback you can provide.

We would like your views on three main areas to inform apprenticeship development and delivery, these being:

  1. What improvements to current skills and intelligence are needed?
  2. What aspects of innovative practice would be useful to be shared more widely?
  3. How can apprenticeships play a greater role in upskilling and/or reskilling of the existing workforce in addition to the training of new entrants?

The survey should take no longer than 10 minutes and we would be grateful if you could spare the time to complete it.

Good Practice Resource

Themes

We identified a number of key themes that have an impact on Apprenticeship programmes across the EU and these are discussed in full in this section. It’s by no means a complete list but, we believe, a fairly comprehensive one.

Case Studies

Partners from the DRIVES Project worked with their contacts and stakeholders to identify a substantial range of good or innovative practise that we felt would be interesting to share with others.

Marketplace Update Report

This Report identifies a range of key issues impacting on the automotive sector that have implications for the apprenticeship marketplace serving the sector and suggests a number of practical actions to address these issues.

Highlights

Responding to Industry 4.0

The automotive industry is rapidly transforming towards Industry 4.0 with massive advancements in technology development and processes which in turn, will lead to a major change in the skills profile of the workforce. Many jobs and processes will need to be redefined, with the emergence of a range of new specialist skills at the same time that some existing skills will diminish in importance. In relation to apprenticeships Industry 4.0 implies both the need to attract a higher level of applicant in order to be able to learn rapidly as jobs evolve and increased use of the digital training for delivery.

High Value Manufacturing Catapult – Skills Foresighting Process

The future skills foresighting process is an example of a structured process of engaging with research organisations and employers to understand new organisational capabilities needed in the automotive sector in 3 to 5 years time and then engaging with employers and educators to identify the competencies (knowledge and skills) needed to implement the capabilities.

Good Practice Resource

Case studies are a great way to capture knowledge and inspire ourselves to take action. They don’t normally replicate exactly the challenges we face in our organisations but they can give a foundation of knowledge that, with a little twist or alteration, helps us generate further ideas or answers. In the Good Practise Resource, we’ve collected examples of good or innovative practice relating to Apprenticeships in the automotive sector in the form of case studies that we hope will inspire you.

The creation of the Good Practise Resource was one of the key recommendations from the Apprenticeship Marketplace report published in 2020. This is one of the outputs for the DRIVES project for the Apprenticeship work package. We’ve developed a broad range of case studies, as our guiding principle, determined that if the case study showcased practises or tools that could be applied to Apprenticeships in the automotive sector, then we would include it.

There are 2 sections to the Good Practise Resource:

  • Themes – when drafting the Marketplace Report, we identified a number of key themes that have an impact on Apprenticeship programmes across the EU and these are discussed in full in this section. It’s by no means a complete list but, we believe, a fairly comprehensive one.
  • Case Studies – partners from the DRIVES Project worked with their contacts and stakeholders to identify a substantial range of good or innovative practise that we felt would be interesting to share with others.
