BLOG: Motor Vehicle, Maths and the Army


I’m Jackson, and I recently completed a Motor Vehicle course at Weston College.

My time at the college was transformative, and I'm thrilled to share a bit of my journey with you.

When I enrolled in the motor vehicle course, I wasn't entirely sure what to expect.

What I found was a stimulating experience that went far beyond just understanding how vehicles work.

The course offered me a hands-on grasp of both the mechanical and electrical systems that power our daily rides. There were challenges, of course, but each hurdle gave me a clearer view of the intricacies between gears and circuits.

The lecturers and staff at Weston College were phenomenal. Their support pushed me to expand my horizons and strive for greatness. Without their guidance and unique teaching styles, I wouldn't have achieved the success I did.

They didn't just teach; they inspired and mentored, making the learning process a collaborative and encouraging journey.

I have always struggled with Maths, but I knew it was essential for my future career goals. Weston College offered the perfect environment to tackle this challenge.

The decision to complete my maths GCSE was driven by my career aspirations and the supportive teachers who believed in me. Their dedication made all the difference, transforming what once seemed impossible into an achievable goal.

Studying maths in college was a breath of fresh air compared to my school days. The mature classroom atmosphere and the passionate teachers created a space where learning was not only easier but also enjoyable – allowing me to gain the skills and qualifications I needed.

I recently received my Maths qualification, which was not only a huge relief, but also a fantastic moment.

So, what's next for me? I'm gearing up to join the army, specifically the REME Regiment as a Vehicle Mechanic. The skills and knowledge I've gained at Weston College have equipped me for this exciting journey, and I can't wait to serve and continue learning in such a dynamic field.
