Engineering & Automotive

HRC’s Engineering and Automotive courses will give you practical and hands-on experience as a full-time college-based learner or as an apprentice working for an employer.

Our full-time courses predominantly take place in our on-site workshops equipped with all the machinery and resources you will need to develop your skills and practise the theory you learn in the classroom.

Alternatively, apprentices in this area will benefit from our well-established partnership with locally-based employers in the industry and you will be able to earn as you learn.

Either way, our Engineering & Automotive courses will give you a head start in pursuing your chosen career.

Estimated salaries: Earn up to £25k as a Motor Vehicle Technician or up to £65k as anElectronics Engineer.

Apprenticeships are available: The level of programme you are offered will depend on the qualifications you have achieved previously. Please see our Apprenticeship pages for more information about our apprenticeship programmes.
