College calls for old cars to help train new mechanics

A COLLEGE has issued a call for old cars in a bid to help student mechanics learn the tricks of the trade.

Warwick Trident College is looking for donations unwanted cars to their motor vehicle course, allowing students to gain vital hands-on experience under the bonnet.

Students require a regular turnover of small hatchbacks to practice maintenance skills and boost their mechanical knowledge. Cars that have failed their MOT, are unused or on their way to be scrapped, are ideal.

College instructor Joshua Saul said: “We are looking for small hatchbacks in any condition, whether they have failed their MOT or are simply runners that people want to get rid of, we would be more than happy to take them of their hands.

“The cars will then provide students regular access to working models, where they can practice their repair skills, build their knowledge base across the car, and undertake practical assessments.

“We can arrange collection of the vehicle, and hope that people looking to get rid of their cars will think of us before taking them to be scrapped, as they will be extremely valuable here, helping to teach the mechanics of the future.”

To arrange the collection of an unwanted vehicle email [email protected] or call 0330 135 6711.
