Motor Vehicle students to benefit from Listers partnership

Solihull College & University Centre has partnered with Listers Group Ltd to help develop the next generation of vehicle technicians.

Listers, one of the largest privately-owned dealer groups in the UK, will support students studying motor vehicle courses and will offer workplace tuition support and supply students with several vehicles to work on in their workshops.

The cars supplied by Listers Group will be equipped with the latest technology and provide students with first-hand experience on a wide range of vehicles.

Nicola Coley, Workplace Coordinator at the College, said: “To have Listers Group on board is a huge plus for our students, and this partnership will help us to develop vastly skilled mechanics, who are fully-equipped for the world of work.

At our campuses, we are training our students to be the future of the motor industry and the possible employment opportunities available because of this deal will give the students a great start. We would like to thank Listers Group for choosing to work with us and providing this vital support for the development of our students.”
