The Motor Vehicle industry is endless in its diversity, ranging from garage and shop floor related positions to technical development engineering. If you think the Motor Vehicle industry is only for the men though, think again - there are plenty of opportunities for women 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.
We have strong links with the University of Bolton's new £13 million National Centre for Motorsport Engineering, a leading light in motorsport performance engineering. Our learners enjoy masterclasses within the Centre and there are clear progression routes from our motor vehicle courses to programmes delivered by the Centre, leading to a career as a motorsport engineer, vehicle technician or classic car restorer.
Classic Car Restoration
I completed my apprenticeship at Boundary Garage in Bury and it’s been a really positive experience, I prefer working to being in a classroom and being paid while learning and getting my qualifications has been a big bonus. Now that my apprenticeship has finished, Boundary Garage have taken me on as a permanent member of staff in recognition of my hard work and achievements.
Jake Roberts – Motor Vehicle Body Repair Level 3
I always wanted a classic car and when I could afford to buy one, I wanted to be able to do a lot of the repairs and maintenance work myself. I’m enjoying developing my knowledge and skills in electrics, body panel repair and chrome repair. I’m looking forward to showing off my car at shows across the UK throughout the year.
