Diploma in Automotive Maintenance & Repair Principles (Level 1)
“I wanted the opportunity to change direction and that’s why I decided to go back to College. I’m a bit older than most of the other students in the class and I’ve had to balance family life with college work and working part-time but I managed.”
Leam Antonio decided to return to College to move his career in a different direction. After several years in the construction industry as a roofer and a young family at home he enrolled into the Diploma in Automotive Maintenance and Repair Principles (Level 1) at Fraserburgh Campus.
He had always been keen on vehicles and understanding what goes on under the bonnet and the course provided Leam with the knowledge and understanding behind the basic skills.
As a young lad he worked in the local garage and farm so he already had a basic knowledge of motor vehicles.
After completing his Level 1 qualification he is now working alongside mechanics at a local garage with a plan to becoming self-employed with help and support from Business Gateway and The Prince’s Trust. He plans to return to NESCol at some point to build his Body and Paint repair knowledge through the Diploma in Accident Repair & Principles course.
