“The donation of a new van from Vauxhall really does ‘support education’ in Coventry,” said Jacki Lord, Deputy Principal, City College. “Our courses prepare students for life in the real world and Vauxhall is helping ensure that training is taking place on the latest vehicles. This sort of up-to-date experience is something that future employers really value. We’re looking forward to expanding our relationship with Vauxhall in training the motor mechanics of the future.”

City College, Coventry was formed in 2002 after two colleges merged, and it has thrived in the years since by reaching out to and working with businesses both in terms of pulling in resources and establishing connections for students to follow after graduation.

The new partnership between Vauxhall and the college was facilitated by Dawn Hall, Business Connector for Coventry.

“I was delighted to be able to connect City College with Vauxhall Motors and to help those studying vehicle mechanics at the College,” said Hall. “City College is one of six colleges across six counties to benefit from Vauxhall’s generous donation of vehicles in recent months.”

Hall is taking part in a year-long secondment with Business in the Community, which helps create links between businesses and schools in order to share resources and create connections that pay off in both the short term and the future.
