Motor Vehicle

If you’re interested in a career in the motor industry that will give you an unbeatable commercial experience – you’re looking in the right place.

We have new and exciting courses that are geared towards training you for a career in the motor industry. You’ll be trained in a real-life working garage based at Bristol Street Motors in Sherwood - the first training facility of its kind in the UK - working alongside professional technicians in vehicle repair and maintenance.

Studying with us will give you the skills that future employers look for; day-to-day experience of on-site work, an understanding of different roles people play to make car dealerships a success and a sound ability to use the latest equipment to diagnose and repair vehicles. You’ll also get all the support on-site that you would have if you were studying at college, including help with maths, English and ICT.

At our amazing facility in Sherwood you will train alongside real mechanics and technicians to hone your technical skills as well as the skills you'll need to work successfully in the motor vehicle industry, including customer service and car sales. Our realistic working environments have recently been highlighted by Ofsted who have recently graded the College as 'Good'.
