“I’m obsessed with all types of historic transport, and we really need young people in the trade to keep skills alive. My grandfather was a racing car driver and mechanic, and I own a classic car. I learn from working on it.
“(This programme) is very specialised so it attracts all the right people and we learn from each other. The course is not too long so it gives me time for independent learning and to learn from my own classic car.
“I have a part-time job at classic car services company, and work helps with college, and college helps with work. I’ve learnt how to do metal inert gas (MIG) welding and I want to experience all parts of classic car restoration, eventually working for myself.”
