2019 Iain Macleod Training Award – IMTA

Matthew Torok – the winner of the 2016 IMTA

2019 IMTA applications are now being accepted

In 2016 Contour Autocraft celebrated 40 years in business and 18 years of running restoration courses.  To commemorate this, and in memory of Contour Autocraft’s founder, we launched the Iain Macleod Training Award – the IMTA.  

Each year we offer a Stage 1 & 2 Car Body Restoration Course to a young person, aged between 16-21 years of age.  They will be awarded a qualification, certified by EAL, upon successful completion of each course.  The qualifications count towards the NVQ3 in Fabrication & Welding. 

We are inviting applicants to enter by submitting either a video, photos, or a written piece describing your work, ideas, long term plans etc.  We will be looking for enthusiasm, potential & a keen interest in metal work.  Convince us to choose you.  Submissions can be supported by tutors, mentors, or work placement seniors.    Email for an application form.

Please share this with your teachers, tutors & friends. It is open to anyone who will be the right age, 16 – 21yrs old, when they take the course.

Application forms must be received by 31st August 2019.  2020 course dates will be released on our website during 2019.
