SEAT Leon Becomes Training Vehicle for Technicians

SEAT’s UK division is supporting future automotive technicians, with the company donating one of its vehicles to be used by motor vehicle maintenance students.

The vehicle we are talking about is a SEAT Leon 1.9 TDI that will be used as a training tool for over 100 students who work towards Institute of the Motor Industry qualifications at the at South Cheshire College’s workshop, a recent development that comes fully-equipped.

We’re absolutely thrilled that SEAT has donated this vehicle as it will make such an impact on the training we’re able to give our students,” said Martyn Johnson, Course Team Leader."Obviously we teach all of the very latest techniques but, in reality, there’s no substitute for being able to get hands-on with a really up-to-date model."

The move came after College Governor Uwe koch, Director of IT at Bentley, discussed this with his colleagues at sister brand SEAT. The latter searched for a vehicle that had been used by employees traveling around the company’s immense factory located on the outskirts of Barcelona.

"I’ve been really impressed by the workshop set-up at South Cheshire College, but the students there will only achieve their full potential if they have the appropriate vehicles to work on,” said David Ardern, Used Car Manager at SEAT UK.

"As a brand, we are totally committed to training and development and our apprenticeship programme, which sees young technicians train on the job at our dealerships across the country, is recognised as one of the best in the industry."
