Hemmings Motor News Blog

Hemmings Motor News has been around since 1954. We're proud of our heritage, but we're also more than the Hemmings full of classifieds that your father subscribed to. Aside from new editorial content every month in Hemmings, we have three monthly magazines: Hemmings Muscle Machines, Hemmings Classic Car and Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car.

While our editors traverse the country to find the best content for those magazines, we find other oddities related to the old-car hobby that we really had no place for - until now. With this blog, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at what we see and what we do during the course of putting out some of the finest automotive magazines you'll ever read.

U.K. Government to Start Backing Auto Restoration Apprenticeships

Posted July 17, 2018 9:00 AM by dstrohl

Less than a year after its debut, the U.K. Heritage Skills Academy — the country’s only accredited institution teaching auto restoration skills — has secured government funding allowing it to revamp its course offerings and extend those courses to adults as well as youth.

As announced earlier this week, representatives from the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs were able to secure the funding from the U.K.’s Education and Skills Funding Agency. Specifically, the funding will enable the Heritage Skills Academy to meet updated criteria for the government’s Trailblazers program, which encourages groups of employers to collectively set standards for apprenticeship programs relevant to their industries.

Classic and modern auto restoration has a new curriculum, and federal funding, in the U.K.

Bit of a contradiction when the UK has banned diesel and petrol cars for road use. Hmm!

What ban? The UK government wants 60% of new vehicles to be electric by 2030 but, at the moment, this is an aspiration not a requirement.
