Workshops are equipped with the latest technology and interactive training tools, and students gain the skills needed in the workplace through hands-on experience.

Further Education qualifications are available in maintenance and repair ( mechanics ), body repair and refinishing, and accident repair paint principles, and are designed to provide you with the knowledge needed for a career in the automotive industry.

If you feel you would benefit from learning while at work, Apprenticeships are also available in a variety of different pathways.

I’ve learnt so many skills whilst studying at Colchester Institute; the whole experience is so different from school. The course provided practical learning which is something i have always enjoyed. I feel confident that I will be able to be successful in my chosen career.Amy Lee – Repair and Paint Refinishing, progressed from Thurstable School
The course is very hands-on and all the tutors talk to you with respect. They have taught us a lot in the small amount of time we have been here. I will eventually take over the family business in restoring vintage camper vans.Josh Morgan - Vehicle Accident Repair and Paint Refinishing Level 2

An apprenticeship is your chance to gain valuable work experience whilst completing a nationally recognised qualification. Typically you will be expected to work full-time, with time spent away from the workplace at college to study for your qualification. The best part is that apprentices do real jobs, for real employers so you are paid while you learn.
