Students will undergo training in our newly established, purpose-built Construction and Automotive Green Technology Centre. This facility is meticulously designed to provide hands-on practical experience that employers highly value, working with actual clients.

We offer a range of full-time courses as well as apprenticeships, covering areas such as Motor Vehicle Repair and Vehicle Respraying. Our Vehicle Respraying programme is sponsored by Lechler and is one of the few offered in the Midlands. Our courses are delivered by industry experts who possess a deep understanding of employer expectations. Notable alumni include a student who worked on a 1935 Dodge and another who secured an apprenticeship with a local employer.
