Motor Vehicle

Do you live and breathe cars? Are motor vehicles your passion? With over 34 million cars on our road today; the demand for repairing and maintaining motor vehicles in today’s modern world is, and continues to be high. 42% of vacancies are hard to fill due to skills shortages and the industry shows no sign of slowing with a predicted growth of 3% until at least 2022 in our region which means companies are continually looking for people with the right qualifications and experience.

Our workshops are kitted out with everything you would find in a professional garage including the latest diagnostic equipment in our autotronics centre. You’ll have a variety of vehicles to work on including Hybrid and full electric vehicles, a vintage 1980s Rolls Royce Silver Spirit and a range of regular vehicles.

Outside of the workshop we have trips during the year include Birmingham NEC and industry related shows and employer visits to organisations such as Mintex and Halfords.

The course is hands on and practical from day one. While working on the different cars in the garage you will get the skills to remove and replace various vehicle systems including tyres, brakes and suspensions as well as learning the principles of engines and electrical systems. Other areas covered include chassis and frame, engines, transmissions and vehicle servicing.

“It’s always stereotyped that Motor Vehicle is a man’s job. But I think more people are becoming lenient when it comes to realising that women can do everything that men can do. Women are proving that they can do so much more than just being at home in the kitchen.”.
