What our students say
Michaela Cook, Advanced Apprenticeship in Motor Vehicle
"I’ve found some of the subject a little difficult to graft straight away but overall I found it fun and I really enjoyed learning more in-depth about components and the vehicle it’s self."
Former school: Ysgol Gyfun Gwynllyw

What next? After my course I would like to stay in mechanics and do more courses to keep up to date with the new models/electric vehicles and software updates. I would hopefully like to see myself owning my own business
