Former Birchwood Community High School student Callum Burns will be taking his studies to the next level as he embarks on a Motorsport and Automotive Performance Engineering degree at the University of Bolton. Callum first came to Warrington & Vale Royal College on a subject sample day with his secondary school and decided to turn his passion for motorsport into a career. His dream is to become a Formula 1 pit crew member.

Josh Gaskell, a previous Byrchall High School student, has secured a prestigious role working as a classic car mechanic for a private car collector. Josh was introduced to his new employer by his college tutor, who knew he had a keen interest in classic cars. Josh said the first-rate reviews were what attracted him to study at the college, adding: “I’ve made some great friends on the course and the tutors are brilliant!”. Josh will be progressing onto Level 3 at college alongside working for his new employer.

Motor Vehicle student Louie Saunders is well on his way to fulfilling his dream of becoming a fully-qualified mechanic after securing an apprenticeship with W9 cars, a BMW/Mini specialist in Newton-le-Willows. The former Irlam & Cadishead Academy student will be working for his new employer alongside studying for his Level 3 course from September. Fellow student Luke Barren has also secured an apprenticeship working for The Zed Shed car repair and maintenance. Luke said: “The facilities at the college are great and allow you to learn everything you need to know for a successful career. I love the practical element of the course and enjoyed learning how to take an engine apart.” Both Louie and Luke will be continuing their studies with the college from September as they progress onto the next level.
