Greenhous Group has provided Telford College with two electric Vauxhall Corsas and components to enhance the college’s automotive training facilities.

The new EVs will help the college expand electric and hybrid vehicle training for full-time students and top-up tuition for local businesses to upskill their technicians.

Danny Minshall, regional retail director of Greenhous Group said: “Greenhous is dedicated to addressing the current technician shortage in the automotive industry.

“Currently, we employ two Telford College automotive apprentices, who are entering their third year. We are always looking for the next generation of talent to join our business and would encourage speculative applications at any time.”

As a result of the partnership, Telford College automotive students can visit Greenhous Vauxhall to observe more complex repairs.

Robert Lees, director of Automotive, Construction and Engineering at Telford College, said: “It is crucial for the next generation of motor vehicle mechanics and technicians to be comfortable with servicing and repairing electric and hybrid vehicles.

“From September this year, Telford College will be running a new Level Three training programme component; Removal and Replacement in Electric and Hybrid Vehicles.”

Geoff Lowe, aftersales manager at Greenhous Vauxhall commented: “This initiative with Telford College is not just an investment in equipment, but an investment in the future of the automotive industry.

“The Vauxhall Electric Corsa’s and their components will provide students with practical, hands-on experience, crucial for mastering the complexities of high-voltage vehicles.”
