There are two incredible, spacious, fully-equipped workshops to simulate a real working environment, including several engine rigs to learn on and rebuild, two-post car lifts, four-post car lifts and even an MOT station. I bought a 1989 Volkswagen Mk2 Polo Breadvan for a project and am currently stripping and rebuilding the engine and the body work to become a show car.

We receive great support from both our lecturers and learning mentors. They are people you can look up to and rely on in any situation; pushing you to achieve more than you ever thought and create an amazing learning atmosphere.

My dream is to become a mechanic in F1 and be part of their pit crew!
