Studying: Motorsport Diploma Level 1

Previous School: Progressing Pathways 2 Progress Student

I like the freedom and variation that College gives me. I attend College for three days a week. During this time, I spend one day in the classroom learning theory, one day at PFI and another day in the College’s Motor Vehicle workshop.

We first start building up our skills and knowledge on rigs and then transition onto cars and go-karts. At PFI, we learn how to fix and re-build karts and then watch them race on the track.

Alongside my Motorsport course, I am also developing my English and Maths skills by studying Functional Skills.

Once I finish my course, I’m hoping to continue my studies at Boston College in Engineering, with the aim of gaining employment as a Mechanical Engineer.
