When you can take your passion and turn it into an income, finding a happy work/life balance is simple. For lovers of cars, tinkerers, repairers, and those that get satisfaction from building and fixing things with their hands, an automotive or mechanical course may be the first step to a career you love. Many of our students have turned their weekend hobby or interest in cars and mechanics into a viable career by completing their apprenticeship with The Gordon. So whether you want to work as a general light vehicle mechanic, specialise in restoring vintage cars, or one day run your own mechanic business, The Gordon provides the wide array of skills you need to thrive in the industry.
