In 2011/12, the IMI conducted its largest ever research project investigating the skills needs of the automotive retail sector.
Working with over 1,600 employers and stakeholders, we investigated the skills and training needs of the industry covering the next 18 months to two years and have been able to identify and prioritise the skills needs for each key job role within each of the 12 sub-sectors of our industry.
A series of reports entitled Preparing for the future: 'Understanding the skills and training needs of the automotive retail sector' have been produced which provide a summary of the project and its main findings and recommendations along with 12 individual, detailed sub-sector reports.

This paper describes the current and future skill priorities for the sector. It draws on research undertaken by the IMI and a range of secondary sources.
This summary outlines key findings from independent research commissioned by the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) and undertaken by CFE between June and August 2010. The purpose of the research was to establish from automotive retail employers: skill needs and gaps; recruitment and training practices; the implications of the recession; and awareness of IMI.
This report sets out the findings of the Automotive Retail Sector 2020 Scenarios Project, commissioned by The Institute of the Motor Industry from SAMI Consulting to address this question.
In particular, the report analyses the general and industry specific issues, trends and drivers which may have a significant bearing on the size and shape of the UK automotive retail sector over the coming decade. (Chapter Two)
