Year 10 and 11 students attend the GASP Motor Project one day per week where they work towards a vocational AQA accredited course in basic motor mechanics and practical engineering skills. They receive specialist, practical, hands-on learning within a focused, personalised and disciplined framework at a fully equipped custom-built workshop in Albury.
It is a real highlight for students who enjoy a practical approach to learning. One student said they would love pursue mechanics fulltime as he has learnt how to strip down an engine and he now understands how a break system works. His tutor said: Not only is the course preparing students for work it also contributes to their positive personal development and wellbeing.
