Local motor dealer John Grose have responded to the call from One, to further enhance the educational facilities for their Motor Vehicle and Repair students.
One’s IMI Awards Level 2 Diploma in Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair educates students in all aspects of routine vehicle servicing such as suspension, engine, braking systems and electronic components.
The Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) Faculty at One benefits from a workshop environment that is fully equipped with the latest state-of-the-art equipment, but has found providing vehicles for their students to learn from a challenge. That’s where John Grose have assisted.
On Thursday 26th September John Grose Sales Director, Richard Howard, handed over the keys to a top of the range Ford Mondeo Estate. This vehicle is considerably younger than those the college had previously. It will allow students to gain important experience on modern vehicle systems, ensuring that their training is relevant to the workshops they may be applying to in the future.
Of the handover Richard said:
“We are really pleased to be able to help One in educating the vehicle technicians of the future. Vehicle technology is developing constantly so it’s crucial for those wanting a career in the motor industry to have training that is as up-to-date as possible. Hopefully our vehicle will help to do this so, combined with the fantastic facilities that One offer, students will have the very best opportunities open to them.”
Teacher Mark Firmin who took delivery of the Ford Mondeo for One, he added:
“The partnership we’re forging with John Grose and the receipt of this car will undoubtedly enhance the quality of the training we deliver. As a direct result our motor vehicle students will be able to develop the necessary skills to succeed on the course and progress in their chosen career path.”
