Mechanics located at our Burnley Nissan dealership have been sharing their expertise with students at Blackburn College as part of the Lancashire Automotive Skills Accelerator Project.
The project that was launched by Blackburn College will create low-carbon skills centres across Lancashire which will help upskill teachers to ensure that courses meet the needs of the employer and the industry.
Jason Slatterly, the Aftersales Manager at Burnley Nissan said: “Electric vehicles will be the future of the industry so it is vital that we have a worked force that is equipped with the right skills to ensure that industry demands are met.
“We are delighted to be continuing to work with Blackburn College, we have a long-standing relationship with the college and are delighted to be supporting the Lancashire Automotive Skills Accelerator Project by helping advise on course content and helping to deliver masterclass for students.”
The project will create five electric and hybrid vehicle skills centres across Lancashire at Blackburn College, Blackpool and the Fylde College, Lancaster and Morecambe College, Myerscough College and Nelson and Colne College Group. Specialisms will include:
Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Service, Repair & Maintenance
Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Motor Sport
Electric & Hybrid Plant Vehicle Technology
Electric & Hybrid Charging Infrastructure
