Student Story

"I was doing the 14-16 day release programme and I’ve now been here for five years! It’s nice to be in a place where you are treated like an adult and you couldn’t ask for better tutors. The course is so worth it – if you put the work in, you get so much out. I’ve got a job at a Volkswagen garage in Hedge End and I can’t wait to start!"

Callum Kimber, Level 3 Diploma in Light Vehicle Maintenance and Repair Principles
