Draper Tools has donated a selection of tools and equipment to a new Automotive Engineering Training Centre at Shrewsbury College, which will provide a range of courses for those starting out to experienced technicians who want to learn more about emerging technologies now entering the independent workshop.
The new facility was unveiled by college Principal James Staniforth and was joined by the Draper Tools-sponsored British Touring Car Racing Team, Excelr8 Motorsport, along with team driver Chris Smiley and his Hyundai i30 Fastback N Performance.
Andy Lee, Director of Employer Engagement and Curriculum Leader for Engineering and Motor Vehicle, said: “The additional training opportunities we can offer through these facilities will further enhance the Engineering and Automotive facilities we already have. We will be able to provide training in such areas as Electric Vehicles, Advanced Diagnostics, ADAS, Master
Technician, and further develop our MOT and Mechanical Engineering capacity.”
