As transport manager for a local community organisation, Liz Sutton signed up for the part-time Level 1 award in transport maintenance to give her a basic understanding of how vehicles work.
Liz said: “I enrolled for the course because as part of my role I am responsible for a fleet of mini buses and felt that I should have some knowledge of basic vehicle maintenance.
“I learnt about brakes, exhaust systems, chemical components and tyres and have more knowledge of how an engine works that I did before. As a result, I feel more confident in my professional role as well as a driver of my own vehicle.
“I was a bit daunted about coming back to college as the last time I was in a learning environment was 25 years ago, but I didn’t feel out of place and really enjoyed the experience.”
