Automotive

As a nation we love our cars, the industry desperately needs qualified, highly skilled people.

Automotive at Wakefield College

If you’re enthusiastic about cars and motorcycles, studying a motor vehicle course with us could help you to turn your passion into a career.

In superb, purpose-built, fully equipped motor vehicle workshops at our Castleford Campus, you’ll study towards qualifications in motor vehicle/motorcycle engineering and body repair and refinishing.

You’ll be getting your hands dirty working on real cars and bikes, learning the skills needed for a career in the sector. Our tutors have a wealth of experience, from working in vehicle maintenance and repair to race teams and specialised vehicle support.

One thing you’ll have in common is a passion for all things automotive, which makes for a hugely energetic and rewarding learning environment.

Key Points
  • realistic working environment – the students work with the latest technology on real vehicles from a regular client base
  • visits to various motor sports/motorcycle shows across the country

I love the fact that it’s hand on and practical. It’s a great atmosphere down in the workshops and the course is great for developing your skills and building up your independence.
