College in the driving seat


Truro and Penwith College’s industry standard motor vehicle workshops at the Truro Campus became the home for a technical training evening hosted by Euro Car Parts and Bosch Automotive recently.

The event saw mechanics from across Cornwall with a variety of experience and skills gather to gain an insight into three different aspects of diagnostics.

Andy Maynard, south west lead business manager for Euro Car Parts, said: “These evenings provide a brilliant platform for mechanics to be able to get a taste of the training that Bosch provide.

“With hybrid cars beginning to dominate the industry it’s important to train people to use the diagnostic workings of the future and ultimately enable garages to move forward alongside the development of cars.”

Nick Tillyer, Truro and Penwith College programme team leader for automotive, engineering and construction, added: “Working with suppliers and technology manufacturers to provide a venue for training is part of our commitment to working with industry, it closes the loop between garages, suppliers and learners in a collaborative approach to fulfilling the needs of businesses in Cornwall.”
