Spotlight

I’ve really enjoyed learning all about the internals of cars and what a car relies on to run smoothly. This benefits me in the workplace because I know how parts work when I come to repair or replace them. So far my greatest achievement has been passing the first year. I’m really proud of this because it means I’m on track to becoming a qualified mechanic.
