St Helens College’s motor vehicle department was recently presented with an award from The Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) Recognised Employer Award, demonstrating their impressive professional standards within the automotive industry.
The award, which is held by less than 60 employers in the UK, forms part of the IMI Employer Recognition Scheme, developed in response to the growing demand for ethical conduct and quality within automotive businesses.
The presentation coincided with the unveiling of the College’s хЃ5million STEM Centre at the Technology Campus and was well attended by local councillors, employers and businesses from across the region.
Business Development Manager at the Institute of the Motor Industry, Michelle Barrett, said, “It was a great honour to present the motor vehicle department at St Helens College with such a prestigious award. They have shown themselves to be among the elite of motor industry professionals and this will have a positive impact on the local businesses they serve.”
Conor, who was also in attendance during the event, said, “It’s such a great accolade for St Helens College to receive this award which reassures the public that the services on offer are of the highest professional standards.”
St Helens College’s automotive hub offers a unique experience to its motor vehicle students, enabling them to learn and practice their skills, under close supervision of industry specialist tutors.
The College also offers a full garage service to the general public, including MOTs, car service and body repairs, paintless dent removal and smart repairs.
