Junior Automotive Academy

City College is running a Junior Automotive Academy next month to give 14-16 year olds a taste for a career in the motor industry. Held in the College’s state-of-the-art workshop, the young mechanics will learn about vehicle systems and repairs.

Starting on Thursday 3 November, the sessions run once a week 5.00pm – 7.00pm. The six-week course will cover engines, cooling and lubrication systems, braking systems, steering and suspension systems, and wheels and tyres.

“The Junior Automotive Academy is a great opportunity for young mechanics to start developing their skills and learn more about working in the industry,” said Steve Edwards, Academy Manager for Automotive Technologies.

“Our experienced tutors will be on hand to give lots of advice and an insight into the automotive industry as a future career. Many of our previous junior academy students have come back to study with us full-time.”

The Junior Automotive Academy is one of a series of academies offered by the College throughout the year to give young students the chance to explore a hobby or interest, as well as give them a taste of what it is like to study a course full-time. Other junior academies include chef, construction and hair and beauty.

For more information and to reserve a space, contact info@cityplym.ac.uk or call 01752 305300.

For those interested in full-time courses, the College is holding an Open Day at Kings Road on Saturday 5 November 10.00am – 1.00pm. Visit our events page or call 01752 305300 for more information.
