Stay ahead of the game

According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, the sales of battery-electric cars have soared 78% in the last year alone, with one in every five cars sold in the UK being electric.  

With just 13% of mechanics being qualified to work on EV/HEV, we are addressing skills gaps in the motor industry to support the sustainability agenda.

Advance your skills, meet the growing demand for EV/HEV-qualified mechanics and future-proof your business with a range of short courses at Gloucester Campus. 

You can get qualified up to Level 4 through courses taught in person by experienced lecturers.
