Kirkby vehicle recycling company and used parts specialist Charles Trent Ltd is helping local students in their drive for success.
The firm, based on Lowmoor Business Park is giving Vision West Nottinghamshire College’s Motor Vehicle department the chance to trade-in old gearboxes and engines for a new crop.
This gives the students the chance to experience as many different types of engines and gearbox combinations during their time studying.
Further to the exchange program a number of vehicles have been supplied to the college by Charles Trent at a heavily reduced rate to ensure that the students always have something new in their workshop to study and immerse themselves in.
Martyn Akehurst, marketing executive at Charles Trent said of the scheme “It’s great to be helping the student learning experience of one of the largest colleges in Nottinghamshire.
“With the skills being developed we could see some of these students working for us in the future as the next generation of vehicle and mechanic experts”.
Programme area leader for motor vehicle, Robert Payton, said: “We really value our partnership with Charles Trent as having access to a range of gearboxes and engines allows our students to work with some really high-quality resources which help with their practical studies.”
