Following the overwhelming feedback received, Drive My Career has launched “Supercharged” an event focusing on apprentices’ wellbeing.

When Drive My Career asked its audience how important it was to them that their employer assists them with mental health, the average score received was 9.1 out of 10. Also, 73% of respondents told us they struggled with their mental health during the pandemic and 78% want to know more about the topic.

“Supercharge Me” aims to help apprentices understand what they can do to recognise and address any signs they may not be ‘firing on all cylinders’ and remind them of the resources available to those working in automotive, especially via Ben, the automotive charity.

The event will be held on Microsoft Teams, registrations are now open on Eventbrite at:

After registering, you will receive a link to attend the live session and/or watch it recorded.

The event is targeted to apprentices, but anybody who may find this of interest is welcome to attend.
