Student story

Image of Grant Lang, automotive student

“I chose this career path due to my passion for cars, in particular classic and race cars which we specialise in at BMC Performance.
 
I chose to study at The Gordon for it’s convenient location and training quality. I really enjoy the facilities, teachers and learning opportunities they provide, particularly in other areas of the trade such as modern computer skills that a classic workshop cannot provide.
 
I recommend The Gordon to family and friends, as it offers real life skills and knowledge, giving you real training to further improve yourself in your trade.”
