Almost 30 companies in the automotive sector will be opening their doors in October to give students and schoolchildren a glimpse into the industry as part of See Inside Manufacturing.
The scheme will focus on young people to foster an interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics subjects in a bid to attract the best and brightest talent to the industry.
Business secretary Vince Cable explained that while this demographic may purchase and make use of the latest products and gadgets, it is necessary for them to consider how exciting a career designing and engineering them could be as well.
"We want them to See Inside Manufacturing and inspire a new generation of engineers and scientists to create a whole range of new iconic UK based products that are exported worldwide," he remarked.
According to the Automotive Council, more than 700,000 people are currently employed in sector jobs in the UK, responsible for producing more than 15 million vehicles in the last ten years.
