What our students say

Automotive Student Alex Mitchison

Alex Mitchison

I work as a Technical Support Engineer for Babcock Critical Services at Heathrow Airport and studied the HNC alongside my job on a distance learning basis. The qualification taught me skills I have been able to directly apply in the workplace and this helped me secure a promotion into the Fleet Engineering department. I hope to continue my education with the aim to get my first management position, ideally as a Transport or Fleet Engineering Manager.”

Alex completed a Vehicle Operations Management Higher Nation Certificate (HNC) and hopes to progress to management in his current role at Heathrow Airport.

Automotive Student Chloe Allen

This course really appealed to me as I was able to study intensive one week block placements at College over a two year course duration, which fitted well around my work and home commitments. The course requires you to work independently and manage your time efficiently; the tutors are very supportive and provide a great deal of encouragement along the way.”

Chloe Allen has completed the HNC in Vehicle Operations Management and currently works as a skilled fitter at Westlands and hopes to pursue her career in automotive management.
