Automotive and Electrical Lecturer Joshua Semple said: “This automotive workshop is a new purpose-built facility, with classroom facilities, practical work spaces, and industry standard vehicles and technologies.
“Over the years we’ve built up a great relationship with local industry.
“We assess their training needs and provide the latest training that keeps our students up to date with industry requirements.
