Student Case Study
Ashley Ireland said: “In year 1 there were the opportunities to study different disciplines in both light vehicle and accident repair, this gave me a good understanding of both industry areas to make a selective choice in year 2. It also made me more employable as I could then demonstrate a mixture of skills. After this year I have decided to do Accident Repair and I am enjoying my course”
