Bolton College is one of a select group of Motor Vehicle and Engineering training providers in the Greater Manchester and Lancashire area. We offer the opportunity for adult learners to be trained on a day release basis, by highly qualified staff with a wealth of knowledge and experience.

The demand for skilled motor vehicle experts is likely to continue to rise as car ownership increases each year. The Motor Vehicle Industry is endless in its diversity, ranging from garage and shop floor related positions to Technical Development Engineers. If you think the Motor Vehicle industry is only for the boys though, think again - there are plenty of opportunities for girls too!

Courses are available at many levels and your training will encompass up to date in-depth knowledge of modern motor vehicle systems, repair, construction, and associated studies. The Motor Vehicle and Fabrication Department is well resourced, and kitted out with industry-standard equipment – including high-spec computerised diagnostic tools.

By studying on one of our Motor Vehicle courses, you could be looking at a career in vehicle repair and renovation, brakes and exhaust fitting, breakdown services, commercial vehicles, fleet management, insurance assessing, MOT testing, servicing management or vehicle servicing.

The engineering industry constantly requires new and innovative young people to develop new ideas. Our Engineering courses therefore offer indispensable theoretical and practical knowledge, plus the technical skills that you will need to build a career in this dynamic sector.

We have good success rates, and we have a range of support services to help you progress in your learning. All our courses are taught in our STEM building at our town centre Deane Road campus.
