Early Fe­bru­ary Glouces­ter-based Bridge Train­ing tasked their Level 1 Mo­tor Ve­hi­cle stu­dents with the chal­lenge of de­sign­ing and build­ing two soap­boxes to en­ter in the 2019 Tet­bury Wacky Races.

The stu­dents, who were split into two teams met the dead­line of Fri­day, May 3 and on bank hol­i­day Mon­day both Rac­ing Teams turned up at Tet­bury and suc­cess­fully took part in the event.

Manag­ing Di­rec­tor of Bridge Train­ing; Mark Har­rod, said; “It was a very proud day for me per­son­ally, see­ing the young stu­dents with such grit and de­ter­mi­na­tion to suc­ceed and the team work was ex­cep­tional. I don’t think I saw a mo­bile phone all day.”

Bridge Train­ing of­fers vo­ca­tional train­ing at Level 1 and 2 to stu­dents aged be­tween 16 – 24 who aren’t com­fort­able learn­ing within large schools and college en­vi­ron­ments.
