This week in Motor Vehicles 08.06.22

This week learners on the level one diploma in light vehicle maintenance course have been designing and creating a trophy for our upcoming competition with Gateshead College.

The rules for the trophy build are 30cm base, 60cm maximum height and no machining or welding allowed. Our learners are struggling to come up with ideas to meet the criterion of no welding, but as we are just at the ideas stage, I am confident they will figure it out. After discussing ideas with tutors from Gateshead College, we decided on a pit stop type challenge too, where learners from both colleges would bring a car into the workshop and remove each wheel with basic hand tools, working as a team to swap their wheels over and refit them. The team with the fastest time wins both trophies for this year.
