Matthew started at Northampton College on the School Link programme which gave him a taste of motor vehicle repair.
“I used to come to college one day a week and I loved it so I was very keen to carry on when I left school. The Vehicle Body Repair and Refinishing course was perfect. We learnt how to restore damaged bodywork and dents. I know how to mix up fillers and prepare the vehicles so they are ready for refinishing. You learn all the basics on the course.”
Matthew was assigned additional support in the classroom which he found really helpful.
“I have Asperger’s and autism so someone was always on hand to help me with my assignments and tasks in the lessons. The teachers were also really supportive if I ever got stuck or needed help. Spray painting was probably my favourite but I loved it all really. I liked mixing up the paint and seeing the finished vehicle.”
Matthew is now studying on the Level 2 programme. “After that I think I will go on to get a job and maybe return to college on the Level 3 in the future. I will keep my options open.”
