How we teach
We like to teach by doing. We spend all our time in our professionally equipped workshops where we turn spanners, weld, chop, cut, make and fix things; its hands on learning all the way. We’ve minimised the theory and maximised fun practical tasks. We use digital tablet computers to evidence your learning through videos, pictures, audio recordings, and almost all our assignments are almost entirely practical!
