Liaising with the Ashington High School’s IT and Media team, TecAlliance has provided the school with access to TecDoc, a leading parts information and data identification system for both passenger car and commercial vehicle applications.
Alongside TecDoc, the students also have access to TecRMI, which provides comprehensive service and repair data that covers repair instructions and procedures, as well as fault finding information and labour times.
Shaun Greasley (pictured), general manager for TecAlliance UK and Ireland, said: “This initiative is intended to help young people understand the complexities of the supply side of the automotive industry and see the opportunities it offers them, the next generation of the country’s workforce.
“Allowing young people to gain some experience of the supply side of the aftermarket and best practice aspects of service and repair, is an effective way of challenging the stereotypical attitude that many people have towards our industry, as there are simply not enough young people coming in.
“While many unfortunately see the industry negatively, those of us who have worked in it, know that it’s a varied sector with many opportunities.
“So although on the grand scale this might be considered a modest step, it does provide a starting point that allows the pupils at Ashington to get a glimpse of the potential the industry has to offer and that’s what we want young people to grasp.”
