Skills Challenge extends deadline for entries

27th Mar 2017

We have extended the deadline for entries in what is shaping up to be the best Skills Challenge yet. With more teams than ever registering their interest, there is still time to get your team in and prove you are the best in the business.

What does it involve?

The Skills Challenge takes place at S&B Automotive in Bristol between 5-10 June, upon entering you will be given a day during the testing week for your team to attend and undertake a series of varied bus engineering challenges – the challenges themselves remain a surprise until the day, but will include mechanical, electrical and bodywork to test the whole team.

Why should I enter?

The competition is a fun team building experience which also highlights the skills and dedication of bus & coach engineers across the UK and beyond. Winning is a great boost to your team and your career, plus there are some great prizes on offer.

When will the winners be announced?

All teams will be invited to the awards ceremony which takes place in late July in the amazing surroundings of the Williams F1 experience, where as well as the awards and lunch, you will have the chance to see some iconic racing cars.

We have extended the entry deadline to 30 April – make sure you visit to register your interest and get the application forms, alternatively you can chat about your entry on the phone by calling us on +44 (0)20 7630 2174.
