The purpose of the IRTE Skills Challenge is to support the bus and coach sector by highlighting the most essential of its parts; technicians. The sector must continue to produce technicians and apprentices who keep the vehicles safely on the road, and this competition aims to give them the platform to show what they can do. The contribution of our sponsors, supporters and partners, who support the SOE in adapting the competition to meet the demands of the sector, cannot be underestimated.
