2018 Skills Challenge

The Society of Operations Engineers (SOE) has confirmed that S&B will host the 2018 IRTE Skills Challenge for the seventh year running . Pioneered by the IRTE (Institute of Road Transport Engineers), the IRTE Skills Challenge champions and rewards the vital work and skills of bus engineers across the UK. In June 2017 bus and coach operators from all over the UK sent teams to S&B to compete in a series of engineering challenges covering the three disciplines of mechanical, electrical and bodywork, to see who had the best technicians in the industry. S&B provides judges as well as equipment and workshop facilities for the full 4 day duration of the event free of charge for the promotion and recognition of skills in the industry. Next year’s event is expected to be bigger and better than 2017. You can find out more about the Skills Challenge here: http://www.soe.org.uk/irte-skills-challenge/.
