Marcus Iles

“I chose to study Motor Vehicle at GC because the course is the best qualification for understanding how cars work. Mechanics is a thing I’ve always liked, and I’ve fixed up cars and bikes before coming to college too.

“I’ve enjoyed meeting new people and the lecturers are always a laugh. The extra support I get is really good too. My dream career is to be a mechanic, and the course has helped me be really ready for that.

“I’d like to go into race mechanics after college and the skills I’ve learnt on my course mean that I feel confident to go into the workplace afterwards to fix brakes, change motors and engines – loads! For anyone wanting to apply to college, I would tell them GC is a really good place to learn new things, and it’s not the same repetitive stuff you’d learn at school.”
