The AutoRaise Cadet Programme

The AutoRaise Cadet Programme


AutoRaise is developing a totally new concept to foster interest in our industry before students are ready to leave full time education. 13-15 year olds enrol with an affiliated vehicle repairer and commit to a programme of mentoring, industry-specific education, work experience and written assignments. They are continually encouraged to pursue the path to an Apprenticeship so that, when they are ready to leave full time education, they will start their course already motivated, knowledgeable and with an understanding of the workplace and their employer.

The AutoRaise Cadet Programme will prepare and place young people into the world of work, bringing together educators and employers to offer young people the best possible chance to find a job or successfully apply for an Apprenticeship. The Programme is being developed to provide employers with a pipeline of high quality talent, ‘work ready’ for Apprenticeships and jobs, which can be mapped with your future workforce needs. AutoRaise can help to manage the entire process, facilitating sustained links between your company, schools and colleges, identifying suitable students and integrating your involvement in a consistent and structured manner.


During the Cadet Scheme period, AutoRaise Cadets will commit to:


  • Attending once-monthly Saturday morning experience sessions
  • Attending work experience during school holidays
  • Ongoing and continual learning through Internet research
  • Completing four written assignments during their term
  • Pursuing the path to commencing an Apprenticeship
