The motor vehicle workshops are fully-equipped to industry standards, ensuring that level one, two and three learners have access to good resources for teaching and assessment.

Four individual workshops

The facilities consist of four individual workshops, each of which has been set up with a good range of tools and equipment; learners work on a wide variety of practical tasks allowing them to gain the skills needed to excel in the commercial workplace. The equipment, spread throughout the work areas, includes vehicle ramps, both two- and four-post to give the learners experience of using the type of equipment that they are most likely to encounter in the industry.

Learners also have access to code readers, engine analysers, laser and computer tracking equipment and rolling road brake testers, Sparsholt campus also has an automatic air conditioning set. All of this equipment is used to give the learners a fully-equipped realistic working environment where just about any light vehicle service and repair task can be carried out.

Realistic working environment

These provide a realistic working environment that enables learners to develop both practical and customer-facing skills such as communication and customer care.  Learners work on a wide range of vehicles to develop their skills in diagnostics, using industry recognised equipment and data. Many staff have recent industrial experience which provides the learners with the best vocational experience that we can offer.
