At BTC we believe, through providing high-quality, extensive on-the-job training through Automotive Apprenticeships, both employer and apprentice together will build the skills and knowledge needed to grow and contribute towards the economic success of the industry.
Bridgwater & Taunton College pride ourselves on providing our apprentices with access to high-quality, industry-standard tools in our well-equipped workshops. Students learn a huge amount during College based study that enhances their contribution in the workshop.
The Apprenticeship curriculum offers industry standard facilities across both Taunton and Bridgwater campuses that meet both interests of potential apprentices and employers.
The Automotive Engineering Department at Bridgwater & Taunton College has been awarded ‘Centre of the Year’ at the Outstanding Achievement Awards 2017, by the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI). The awards recognise outstanding individuals as well as the world-class training being delivered across the UK.
The centre also houses welding workshops, body repair, and refinishing facilities as well as a bespoke motorsport environment. Should any of our Apprentices have a particular interest in Motorsport, we offer the opportunity to support the College Motorsport Race Teams it competes throughout the UK.

How else can we help?
Although your business may belong primarily to the automotive industry, there may be other functions that are covered within the service. You may have an accounts department, a delivery function, general admin, customer service or managers looking to upskill – the list is endless.
Increasing the productivity and efficiency of any of these areas could have a really positive impact on profitability, and an Apprenticeship programme is a really cost-effective way of doing that.
We offer a variety of different training solutions and sports memberships to support you with your business and our team will tailor your training requirements to your business needs.
