Automotive Technologies The only College in London with its own Championship Racing Team.


Welcome to

Automotive Technologies

T

he opportunities that await those students studying motor vehicles and motor sports at Barnet and Southgate College are phenomenal so it is no surprise that we attract so many committed learners to our courses. Whether you are looking to become a vehicle mechanic, a body and paint worker or follow in the tracks of our previous students working in the motor sports industry, you will find a team of staff with the right industry knowledge and connections to propel you on your chosen track. Our impressive connections have delivered career-defining opportunities such as funding and support from Mazda UK to enable students to gain real-life work experience on the race track in the pit-lane, to the purchase of cars and equipment to allow the College to form BSC Racing, our own fully fledged motor racing team. The team will compete in major championships from 2014 onwards, and our current students are already networking and making contacts with established race teams through our regular testing visits to the track. We are also passionate about giving our students the edge by exposing them to the latest developments in the motor industry. The UK is at the forefront of the low carbon agenda, investing heavily in research and design in cleaner air technology. We are one of the only colleges in the country to have its own hybrid electric vehicle servicing course, giving our learners hands-on access to an increasingly popular mode of transport, and a growing section of the industry. The true scope for employment in this growing sector comes as a welcome surprise to many. Britain is the fourth largest vehicle manufacturer in Europe, making one and half million vehicles in 2012 – that’s a new car, van, bus or lorry rolling off a production line every 20 seconds. Jobs within the country’s seven volume car manufacturers, eight major premium and sports car makers, eight commercial vehicle and ten bus and coach manufacturers are eminently within reach for our leavers. That’s not to mention the many spin-off jobs created at thousands of component factories, supplying essential

parts to motor vehicle manufacturers. The UK automotive industry employs around 720,000 people and generates more than £55 billion in annual turnover to the economy. Around 50,000 people are employed in motorsport including the country’s eight Formula 1 teams. Our body and paint services are amongst the best available. Our state-of-the–art workshop facilities at Baird Road in Enfield, feature a bespoke newly created training environment where the spray booths, paint mixing room and gun wash facilities have the look and feel of a science lab. Here you’ll also learn how to carry out SMART (Small to Medium Area Repair Techniques) to repair minor damage to a vehicle’s body work, eliminating the inconvenience and expense to the customer of taking it to a body shop. We are uniquely placed to provide a wide range of body and paint commercial services to the highest industry standards, including alloy wheel refurbishment, tyre repair, and wheel alignment services. Given that our students are doing the real thing rather than simply practising, it’s no surprise that half of our students placed on work experience with Halfords last year were offered local jobs on leaving. Our focus is simple; we aim to provide you with the best training available to get you the job you want. To this end we are rapidly building our motor industry links to match our training expertise. We are actively engaging with motor vehicle companies and manufacturers to determine their employment needs and as a result, fine tuning our courses to ensure that our students leave the College with exactly the right skills that employers are looking for. The motor industry is growing with optimism, and we intend on ensuring that our students are well placed to take advantage of new employment opportunities in this growing sector.

In pole position for a career in motorsport If you have a passion for motorsport, BSC Racing can help to turn your dream into a roadworthy career.

T

he College’s fully-fledged racing team, BSC Racing (Barnet & Southgate College Racing Team) made its debut by entering the 2014 Mazda MX5 Supercup Championship. As part of their BTEC Motorsports course, students converted a MX5 road car, ‘Winning Blue’, to full Motor Sports Association (MSA) racing specification, and fully prepared it for the season with the help and advice of other team championship contenders. BTEC Motorsport students joining BSC Racing are given roles and responsibilities that correspond with the real world of motorsport. They are race car engineers, responsible under expert supervision for every aspect of the car’s performance on track. Each student takes on a particular area of expertise, and when BSC Racing is out testing or track racing, it relies fully on their developing skills to help the team to victory. Barnet and Southgate College Motorsport students learn and apply professional race engineering skills. Students benefit from support and advice from the motor racing industry experts and from the other racing teams entering the championship. Motorsports students also have the opportunity to meet experts when out on track testing, mingle in the pit garages, and learn about the cars. Many of the teams are looking for engineering talent, so this networking could be a fast-track into a fantastic career. A number of professional guest drivers race for BSC Racing throughout the season. As serious racers they expect an expert service from the team. BSC Racing runs an extensive testing programme and students spend a good deal of time on the track, helping to ensure it is competitive on race day.

6

Career opportunities in motor sport can be further boosted through the racing team’s links with universities that specialise in motor sport engineering degrees. Students can join practical employment skills activity days, working with race teams and engineers on applied engineering projects, and gain valuable evidence of knowledge and experience for job applications. Working with BSC Racing enters students into the real world of motor racing. By making the most of the opportunities available, they can build an impressive track record of work experience and strong networks in the motor sport world, giving a serious competitive advantage into an exciting and rewarding career choice.

Driving straight through to university Daniel McDermott (19) is a BTEC Motorsport student who stayed on at school to do his A Levels, but things didn’t quite go to plan.

I

found out about the Motorsport course through the College website and then I came along to one of the open days at the Southgate campus and met with some of the tutors, who explained all about the course and I knew that it was the right one for me. After my GCSEs I stayed on at school and did my A Levels, but it didn’t go to plan and I left with some AS Level UCAS points. I really wanted to get into the Motorsport industry and the BTEC course seemed like a better option for me rather than A Levels, as it seemed to be the most beneficial route to help get me to University. I now come into College three days a week and the other two days I work in a garage. College has helped me with my job in the garage as I have found the course really helpful and what I learn at College I implement at work all the time. I’m in my second year of my course now and I work at the garage part time. I think working has given me an advantage, I have more experience and knowledge, I think this will help me in the future as well. The course has been great, the teaching is really good and I find it all very interesting. It has really opened up the Motorsport industry to me and I can see all the relevant career paths into the industry, which has been helpful.

My plans now? I have already applied to university courses to further my career in motorsport. I’ve applied for degrees in automotive and motorsport engineering and my BTEC course is recognised by the universities. I’m pleased to say I already have four university offers but my top choices are Huddersfield or Hertfordshire. My results come out in August and I am hoping for a distinction or good merit so I get my university place.

I only have a few months left on the course and I finish this summer. The course has been so good as it has taught me new things in a practical way, at school it’s much more academic and I learn more this way. The atmosphere compared to school is not as intense, it’s a bit calmer, I always felt under pressure at school but here it’s a more mature environment. I found it ok adjusting here after school as I made friends easily, it was hard at first as everyone is timid, but now we all get on its great. My parents have been fully supportive of my choices and they are happy with the College also.

Green vehicles offer growing job prospects Hybrid Electrical Vehicles (HEV).

H

EV technology combines an internal combustion engine, usually diesel, with electric motors. Sales of HEVs are rising fast, and there is a growing need for technicians trained to work on them. Level 2 and 3 courses in HEV repairs and maintenance provide students with the necessary skills to enter this exciting area for employment in the vehicle industry. HEV technology appeals to many motorists because it is cheaper and more environmentally friendly and many repair centres are keen to attract people trained in the right specialist skills to maintain HEVs. The Level 2 Award in Hybrid Electrical Vehicles Operation and Maintenance is designed for technicians who repair and maintain hybrid technology vehicles. It provides the knowledge required to work safely around a vehicle’s hybrid system, whilst carrying out repairs or maintenance. On completion of this single unit qualification, technicians will have gained knowledge of high voltage hybrid technologies and an understanding of their dangers. These qualifications could also provide the essential knowledge and skills for members of the emergency services who may attend an accident involving a high voltage hybrid vehicle. At the end of the course students are tested by a multiple choice test, and once successful can progress on to the Level 3 Award. The Level 3 Award in Hybrid Electric Vehicle Repair and Replacement provides students with the qualifications, knowledge and skills to be thoroughly competent in maintaining hybrid vehicles and the hybrid system itself. It also provides the knowledge and skills required to work safely in and around the vehicle’s hybrid system.

10

Your knowledge will be tested via a multiple choice test, an oral question and answer session, and a practical assessment. Once you have finished your course (containing two units) you’ll be able to practically demonstrate that you have the knowledge and skills required for repairing hybrid vehicles.

Electrically Propelled Vehicles Electrically propelled vehicles are powered by one or more electric motors, using electrical energy stored in batteries or a similar storage device. They produce no harmful pollution from the exhaust and sales in Britain rose significantly last year. Barnet and Southgate College offers the first qualifications of their kind to address electric vehicle (high voltage) technology. The qualifications are essential to ensure the health and safety of technicians working with electric vehicles. The courses have been developed by IMI Awards (the organisation that sets training standards for the industry), electric vehicle manufacturers, component suppliers and the IMI Sector Skills Council. The Level 2 Award in Routine Maintenance on Electronically Propelled Vehicles is designed for technicians who maintain and repair electric vehicles. The course contains the knowledge required to work safely around vehicles’ high and low voltage electrical systems and electric drive train system, while carrying out repairs or maintenance. Once completed, students will have gained knowledge of both low and high voltage technologies and an understanding of their dangers. This course is assessed by online test and a practical assessment.

The Level 3 Award in Electrically Propelled Vehicle Repair and Replacement (QCF) is designed for technicians who maintain, service, handle and repair electric vehicles. This course provides students with all the knowledge and skills required to work safely in and around vehicles’ high and low voltage electrical systems and electric drive train system whilst carrying out repairs or maintenance. The course is particularly suitable to individuals from the retail automotive industry and the public service sector, (such as members of the emergency services who may attend an accident involving an electric vehicle.) On completion of this qualification, technicians will be able to practically demonstrate that they have the skills required for repairing vehicles with low and high voltage electric technologies. Technicians will also gain the knowledge of the dangers surrounding electric vehicles and the precautions necessary to avoid potential injury.

Training in the industry for the industry Martin Bradley, Training Manager at SCBPS

I

joined SCBPS in 2013, with a track record of over thirty years’ experience with leading names in the motor industry. I started as an apprentice mechanic and later progressed to the training division of the sector, establishing courses and managing learning centres in Germany, Eastern Europe and the Middle East. I have worked for Saab, Ford, Chevrolet, and General Motors. The centre offers some of the best learning opportunities in the country to students, apprentices and industry experts, with its top level facilities, industry-led courses and working links with employers and customers. We really have the best of everything. The facilities and equipment, from our paint booths to bodywork equipment, is all up to a standard expected by high-end companies in the industry, such as Mercedes Benz and Porsche. The teaching staff at SCBPS are all extrade experts and craftsmen in their fields, from painting to panel beating. We use that knowledge and experience to equip our students with the skills to excel in the industry. One feature that really makes our training centre stand out is that we work on actual customers’ cars. Many courses in other colleges involve just working on single panels stuck on stands, and I think that can be boring for students. But a real car that is going out on the road or the track – that is a serious job that they know must be done properly. Some of the cars we work on are extremely expensive; a lot of classic cars are brought here for restoration. We recently had a £50,000 1953 Daimler. It is one of only four cars of its kind originally painted primrose yellow; a beautiful car that really showcases the opportunities our students have here, and the quality of their work.

Does this genuine high-end work ever cause complications for SCBPS? As you’d expect, we do pay a lot for insurance. All our students are very closely supervised but as any expert knows, things can go wrong.

14

But the beauty of it is there is nothing we can’t fix. Because we are a training centre our rates are very competitive, and customers understand that if something goes wrong, there may be a delay, but the work done on their cars will be up to the best industry standard.

What sort of response is SCBPS receiving from students, employers and the motor industry? We are getting increasingly good feedback from employers about our training, and prospects for students are growing, with some local garages expanding and taking on more apprentices. We keep employers updated on courses and any new industry requirements, and word seems to be getting around that our work is excellent quality. We do have a bit of an issue with students... they are supposed to finish by 5pm they are so keen that we often have to throw them out at 6pm. It is very satisfying to see how much they enjoy their courses and the quality of their work, our staff and facilities will be reflected in our success rate.

T

he Motor Vehicle course really interested me as since I was in school I’ve always liked cars and mechanical things. I like fixing things and thought the course would be a good choice for me. I really enjoyed the first year of my BTEC at College, and my results were so good that I jumped straight onto level 3. The HND course has been really good and a good step after the BTEC, I’m enjoying it, I can do all my assignments in time and I love the practical elements. The training and the college environment has been good for me and I have made some good friends and the tutors are all very nice people. The teaching is really good and I live in Enfield so it’s ok coming into the Southgate Campus as well. After my HND I hope to become a manager in a motor vehicle workshop. At the moment I’m currently working over the weekend, it’s unpaid work in a garage but work experience like this is very useful and important for me when I look for a job after my course. I come into College on a Monday and Tuesday and the rest of the week I work on my assignments as I’m working in the garage at the weekend.

Learning to be a better driver The new Barnet and Southgate College Driver Training Academy (launching this year), offers both learner and advanced driving lessons exclusively to our full and part-time students at significantly discounted rates.

W

e aim to work to a higher standard of learning and instruction than is generally available on the market.

Barnet and Southgate College recognise that having a driving licence is an important advantage on your CV when looking for jobs. So not only will you be able to learn to drive with the Academy, you could also take your learner driving a stage further to Advanced Level by undertaking a recognised Advanced Driving Course. Not only do you reduce your accident potential by a staggering 75%, but it often guarantees significant insurance discounts with selected insurance companies who sign up to heavily discounted rates for successful candidates. It also puts you in a good position when applying for jobs that require you to be able to drive. Official records show that in 2011, for example, there were a total of 151,474 reported personal injury road accidents. 22% (33,322) of these involved at least one young (17 to 24 year old) car driver, and in total: 412 people were killed in accidents involving young car drivers (22% of total road fatalities in 2011).

18

This is why we at the BSC Driving Academy focus on promoting safety and speed awareness for young people. We also offer special safety courses for those drivers who feel vulnerable behind the wheel, or are looking for personal and road safety tips to keep out of trouble. Our training involves in-car and classroom tuition, including speed awareness, hazard recognition and theory training.

The Eliminator – Game on! In 2013, a group of learners from the College developed a very special prototype, something that did not exist in this format in the commercial market place. The Eliminator was born.

P

ractical project work is vital to the success of the Motor Vehicle students. Having the support and independence that the teaching staff provide enables them to design and develop cutting edge, commercially focused projects; something that is unique to the students at Barnet and Southgate College. The Eliminator is a game simulator and became part of the project work for the BTEC National Diploma course. This simulator has proved to be an inspiration to other students, encouraging creativity in their practical work alongside providing a serious promotional tool for the whole College. The students often get involved in promotional events, where they demonstrate their talents in bringing the Eliminator to life, speaking passionately and skilfully to new students; they are perfect ambassadors.

This is as close to actual driving as you will get without going anywhere. Alexi Kromidias BTEC Student Umair Zaman is the student who brought this plan to life. Through his passion, creativity, and sheer determination he managed to bring together a group of likeminded students to work on making the plan into a reality.

20

Further funding has been identified to build on this work and prototype 2 is now in development; enrolling students may get the chance to work on this prototype or hopefully, develop their own!

This product has provided a showcase PR opportunity and has generated a massive amount of interest in the College. Ruben Tamandong BTEC Student


The Big Skills Competition Local employers impressed with industry skills of students.

T

he Big Skills Competition is one of the most exciting events of the Automotive Technologies calendar. Staff and invited guests join forces at the Southgate Campus to see the cream of Barnet and Southgate College students in action as industry employers are invited to make up a professional panel of judges At the most recent event, guests from Kia, Honda, Pimlico Plumbers and the College Board of Governors watched student teams undertake set tasks over the whole day. Successful teams won professional toolkits whilst one very lucky student got to win a ride in the stunning Ferrari F12 supercar a few days later. “Our young people so often get a terrible press – but even the most cynical observer attending the College’s Motor Vehicle Student Skills competition would have been as heartened and delighted to have seen the enthusiasm, dedication and desire to learn and develop that I witnessed. It is clear that the College is straining every muscle to give these youngsters exactly the right kind of skills in their armoury to go out and find meaningful and rewarding work in today’s competitive industrial and commercial landscape and the young people taking part were clearly determined to extract every possible benefit from the opportunities that are being opened up to them. It was a real privilege to be involved and a pleasure to see the value of effort and concentration taking hold in the minds of these young people.” Steve Kitson, Director of Corporate Communications, Kia Motors UK

“I was recently invited to attend Barnet and Southgate College to be involved with their Big Skills Competition for automotive apprentice technicians. As one of the judges of the competition I was extremely impressed with the high level of skills and competence being demonstrated by the young technicians taking part and the high degree of confidence they used to complete each of the skill tasks, which included both individual and team practical skill activities. This type of event demonstrates the commitment by the College to further underpin these young people’s skills and demonstrate the benefits of high quality training within the automotive industry in general. I look forward to being actively involved with similar well organised events in the future.” Perry Collingwood, Senior Technical Trainer, The Honda Institute. Honda Motor Europe “I recently attended the Big Skills Competition at the Southgate Campus. It’s fantastic for me as HR Manager at Pimlico Plumbers to have had the opportunity to attend the showcase event as it gave me an opportunity to tap into the best talent the College had to offer. Just like with our plumbers’ apprentices, we want the best vehicle technician apprentices available, and I have to say that the standards of apprentice on show were exceptionally high with some very worthy winners on the day. I was very impressed with the whole setup within the College vehicle department and also with the attitude the college has towards getting their young people to have a ‘workplace’ mentality when they are on campus. We have offered two apprenticeships to students who took part in the event and we hope we can continue to work in partnership with such a well organised, results driven college.” Dominic Ceraldi, General Manager, Pimlico Plumbers

Parent Power From September 2013 the education leaving age rose to 17 and from 2015 it will rise again, to 18. However, post 16 education doesn’t just mean staying at school fulltime: your child can stay at school, go to college, or take up an apprenticeship or a part-time training course. They can earn money and learn new skills at the same time if they want to.

O

ur A Level department is the second largest provider in the Barnet and Enfield areas, which provides those who wish to progress onto Higher Education a clear route. However, for many students academic routes are not the most appropriate option; with an increasing number of vocational and professional education programmes on offer there are now other exciting pathways which lead students to greater success and fulfilment in their working life.

A recent Edge Foundation survey discovered that many young people are being actively discouraged from opting for vocational and professional education - with just a quarter of parents (27%) judging it to be worthwhile*. This is despite evidence that people who choose a practical, hands-on approach to learning are as fulfilled as people who took an academic route.** Additionally, research from the 2012 First Steps to Wealth Report, illustrates that the lifetime earnings of a graduate are comparable with the lifetime earnings of many former apprentices - for example construction apprentices earn a total of £1,504,000 over their life time compared with £1,612,000 for a graduate,*** dispelling the fear that university degrees lead to much higher life time incomes. The survey identified that many students (22%) are being advised by parents and schools that they are ‘too clever’ for vocational and professional education. Only half (51%) of parents encouraged their child’s choice to pursue vocational qualifications, compared to three quarters (74%) who were happy to support their child through an academic route.

26

This highlights a growing problem: you as parents are not getting access to the most up to date career information to allow you to make informed choices about your children’s future. We understand that parents remain the biggest influence on their children’s education (44%), so we need to equip you with the knowledge and skills to be able to give sound, informed advice about the options available for you child.

Barnet and Southgate College recognise parents as a valuable source of information to help us provide you with the detail to make an informed choice about your child’s future education and progress. We want to know what is it you want from us in terms of advice and guidance and how we can help you to better advice your children? With this in mind we have developed various communications channels for you to engage with us.

There continues to be a stigma attached to vocational and professional education which is unfounded. This country has a huge challenge ahead in ensuring that our children are equipped with the right skills to ensure a successful workforce of the future, and parents are part of that journey. It is essential that parents understand the future job market and therefore enable and encourage their children to train appropriately so they do not become another number in the endless list of university graduates that cannot secure employment.

A parents’ webpage: http://www.barnetsouthgate.ac.uk/ information-for-parents

Recent independent research commissioned by the Association of Colleges (AoC) found that many parents admit they struggle to give their child the right advise when it comes to the world of work. The Barnet and Southgate College REED NCFE Employment Zone has been developed with this research in mind. At the REED NCFE Employment Zone students are professionally guided to help them find the right job after their course, and they are taught how to think and behave in a work environment. This is done via work placements, interview training, CV writing skills and specialist careers advice as well as sessions run by employers within their subject area. In a recent survey of 1,264 employers conducted by REED, 97% put the workplace ‘mind-set’ element ahead of skills, as something they look for when recruiting. In a further study of 30,000 CVs, REED found that demonstrating a workplace mind-set on a CV “tripled your chances of getting and keeping” the best job.

To encourage you to engage with us we often offer prize draws for survey entrants, these include track days, short culinary arts courses, spa treatments and many more – so it’s worthwhile! Let us know what you want, and what you think.

The Edge Foundation Survey *Research conducted by OnePoll in January 2014, surveyed 2,230 people aged 18-35 in full time employment in the UK. **Respondents were asked to score on a scale of 1-10 (where 10 = happiest) ***Research sourced from the First Steps to Wealth Report, published in 2012


Getting the right advice for your child “It is essential that parents understand the future job market and therefore enable and encourage their children to train appropriately.”

T

here are five careers advisors at Barnet and Southgate College, two are based at Wood Street, two at Southgate and one at Grahame Park. Members of our team also work at Edmonton Green, Child’s Hill Library and Burnt Oak Community Centre.

The essence of careers guidance is helping people to make decisions about learning and work, and to manage their career progress. Advisers do this through offering one-to-one help and delivering group workshops. Our aim is to give students a full picture of their options, talk through the pros and cons and help each student to identify the best course for them. Some common questions students ask are: What are my options for next year, What should I study at university, Can you check my personal statement, Would you have a look at my CV, What jobs can I get after this course and even: I want to earn lots of money but I don’t want to work very hard – what should I do?! However, a fundamental part of the careers adviser’s code is impartiality. We are not a sales team working on behalf of the College and it’s not our job to sign up your child to College courses. Our role is to explore the full range of appropriate options with them, looking at the advantages and disadvantages and through this to help young people make decisions which are right for them – and that actually might not be to study on a course at Barnet and Southgate College. We welcome parents to come in and talk to us with their child. In fact, this can be really helpful as parents know their children well and often have useful insight regarding what their children enjoy and are good at. “I think we offer a number of things at College that schools just do not offer. I think we offer a wider range of opportunities in our mix of academic and vocational courses and consequently the chance to study something

new which is not available in school; a fresh start - a chance to define yourself as you wish, rather than conforming to other people’s established expectations of you; a chance to interact with a broader mix of people and to expand your horizons. As part of our job we attend a number of external events such as Higher Education Fairs with students, and we also participate in school events. We are also starting to work at Employer Fairs this year so that students can meet employers and find out about jobs, apprenticeships, volunteering and training opportunities. It’s important for us to connect with students at schools and within college. At the beginning of the academic year, the Learner Services team carry out induction talks with each group of new students. This gives us the opportunity to tell students about our services and how to find us. Class tutors can also sign up for further group talks which gives us the opportunity to reach more students. We cover things like Introduction to Higher Education, Alternatives to HE, Applying to University, Writing a Personal Statement, what to do next after your current course, Preparing for Interviews and Career opportunities in specific fields and Progression. Sometimes students sign up for a course which really doesn’t suit them which can easily lead to de-motivation and under performance. We can help support them to identify better options and channel their energies into something they are more enthusiastic about. We are here to help them take the next step, whether that’s Higher Education, another further education course, an apprenticeship or employment. We also help to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to put their career plans into action so that they can get into the courses for the job they want.”

I love my job. I meet a variety of people at different stages in their lives and with such a wide range of needs and ambitions. There’s always something new to learn and I receive continuous on-going training and this has all sorts of benefits. For example, I recently went to an event at a local university which was focused on nursing and midwifery. Learning about what makes a high calibre applicant for these degrees has really helped me when advising clients and giving mock interviews. I think employers these days are looking for a work ‘mind-set’ and by that I mean a willingness to turn up on time, focus on the task and apply themselves, a readiness to muck in and do both the humble and the more complex tasks, a willingness to learn and to sometimes put up with the odd mundane task. Everyone has to start somewhere. I’ve been working at the College for nearly two years and there have been so many good things about this job but two in particular that stand out to me is when a student walks out of your office with a smile on their face because they have a plan and they’re excited about it and secondly when they rush up to you in the corridor to tell you that they’ve been offered a place on the course they wanted or have got the job that they went for, it’s very rewarding indeed.
