Revving Up Industry Experience for Motor Vehicle Learners

The Motor Vehicle industry is exciting and dynamic. Cars are everywhere, and they often need servicing, repairs and enhancements!

The Motor Vehicle Career Excellence Hub is a way for Weston College learners to enter industry while being supported the whole way through. Learners have the chance to get vital experience in what a mechanic’s workshop is actually like which will prove incredibly useful for their future career.

Learners will benefit from meeting mechanics and being able to get their foot in the door early for future employment in these workshops. Some of the skills learned in these work placements could include body repairs, paint, working on interior & trim, and repairing the electrical systems on a vehicle.

Careers that learners in the Motor Vehicle Career Excellence Hub can go into include being a vehicle technician, mechanic or electrician, vehicle body repairer, vehicle paint technician, or a parts salesperson or advisor. These careers are lucrative, with individuals in these roles earning a good living. For example, a vehicle technician earns on average £26,068.

On top of attending the Career Excellence Hub, learners will be able to study at one of our three full-size Motor Vehicle workshops at the South West Skills Campus. This area features working vehicle ramps and all of the tools that learners will find in industry. The motor vehicle team also has several cars which can be worked on by learners to learn crucial skills such as servicing, diagnostics and repair. These vehicles are changed and updated frequently to provide further experience of different models and issues.
