Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE - Lynn Love

New Col­lege La­nark­shire are in the run­ning for a na­tional mo­tor industry award in recog­ni­tion of their com­mit­ment to high stan­dards of train­ing.

The Motherwell Cam­pus have been short­listed for ap­proved train­ing cen­tre of the year at the IMI Out­stand­ing Achiev­ers Awards.

The awards are or­gan­ised by the In­sti­tute of the Mo­tor Industry to cel­e­brate ex­cel­lence among 660 ap­proved train­ing cen­tres across the UK.

The au­to­mo­tive area in the col­lege’s Motherwell cam­pus has around 1000 stu­dents and more than 40 staff, mak­ing it the largest fur­ther ed­u­ca­tion provider of au­to­mo­tive train­ing and ed­u­ca­tion in Scot­land.

The col­lege will com­pete with Derby Col­lege and Mercedes-Benz UK for the cov­eted tro­phy.

This is the sixth time that the fac­ulty of en­gi­neer­ing and au­to­mo­tive has been short­listed for the award since 2010 – and it won in both 2010 and 2015.

Glyn Evans from IMI said:“New Col­lege La­nark­shire’s Motherwell cam­pus is a cen­tre that con­sis­tently meets stan­dards and the needs of industry.

“The team are pro­fes­sional in their ap­proach to en­sure that train­ing and as­sess­ment is of a high qual­ity.”
