OESAA confirms return of OESAA Academy Live

The Original Equipment Suppliers Aftermarket Association (OESAA) is pleased to announce confirmed dates for the highly anticipated return of OESAA Academy Live, starting at Trafford College on Thursday 29th February.

Building on the resounding success of its college events in 2023, where hundreds of students and working apprentices were captivated by informative presentations and dynamic demonstrations orchestrated by OESAA members, designed to communicate directly with the next generation of automotive stars, OESAA is proud to be returning with its impactful concept.

Following the kick-off event at Trafford Park, Manchester, OESAA Academy Live will embark on a journey to East Coast College (Lowestoft) and Suffolk New College, hosting back-to-back events on the 20th and 21st March respectively.

The momentum will continue with Blackburn College set to host a fourth event on the 18th April, concluding an initial flurry of OESAA roadshows in just seven weeks, with more to be confirmed and announced in due course.

Esteemed industry leaders and OESAA members, the likes Schaeffler, Bosch, DENSO, MAHLE and Brembo, have all pledged their support to OESAA Academy Live. Their attendance emphasises their commitment to nurturing the burgeoning talent within colleges across the UK and Ireland, while championing the dynamic automotive sector.

Siti Abdullah of Brembo, for example, will introduce students into the world of braking solutions; Bosch’s Mark Heard will explore the current challenges associated with vehicle diagnostics; and Stuart Mcleod from ZF delves into transmission servicing. There will be an eclectic mix of topics on offer from OESAA’s experts.

Furthermore, Jo Warren from GSF Car Parts and a representative from the IMI will also be in attendance. Jo, the HR director of the national motor factor, will share her expertise in CV writing and offer invaluable career advice.

OESAA Chairman, Nigel Morgan, said: “We are thrilled to announce the return of OESAA Academy Live, following the tremendous success of our college events in 2023.
