The National Motorcycle Dealers Association (NMDA) has held a successful virtual group meeting with dealer members and other stakeholders, to discuss standards for the Motorcycle Technician Trailblazer apprenticeship.

“Our industry, like many others, is struggling to attract new talent into technical apprenticeships,” explained NMDA head Paddy O’Connell. “The Trailblazer group is imperative for attracting the right volume and calibre of people into the world of power two-wheelers. It has reconvened to continue ensuring standards remain relevant, attainable and that they realistically address the requirements from industry and the public.

“Attracting new talent into technical apprenticeships has never been easy. But thanks in large part to the engagement of this group, we’re moving things forward and securing a stable workforce for our sector.”

The next Trailblazer group meeting, open to all interested stakeholders, is on Tuesday 9 November. For details, e-mail [email protected]
