Lincoln College leads autonomous vehicle training for local automotive industry

The College’s Automotive Engineering team hosted an event on Wednesday 8th May alongside the Institute of Motor Industry (IMI) with attendance from big business names including Marshal Nissan, Soper BMW, Hella and National Windscreens.

The event was designed to support local automotive firms from across Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire with their professional development.

The technical training update on the Advanced Driver Assist System (ADAS) featured talks and demonstrations by companies at the forefront of the industry.

Presentations were kicked off by Hella and National Windscreens on the latest ADAS developments as well as live self-park demonstrations from Nissan and BMW.

Paul Killingsworth owner of PK Automotive solutions and PK Motorsport said: “It’s really important to support and get involved with your local college, that’s why I’m here tonight.

“My background is in training, so I know how important these events are – there’s a big enough skills gap as it is so these events really help to keep this trade going.”

Automotive Engineering Learning and Skills Lead Pete Jackson said: “These vehicles are becoming more popular and the Government plans to bring forward stopping the sale of solely petrol and diesel cars to 2032 – so there’s a real need to collaborate with the industry to train, retain and promote technical staff.

“Our aim, along with the IMI is to raise awareness, offer first class training and to maintain these technical update evenings”.

IMI Business Development Manager Michelle Barratt said: “With the continuous rapid advancement in technology, these events are a valuable insight for local employers and members to keep themselves up to date.“

Level 2 apprentice and student Jack Pybus said: “I came to the last event and it was really useful to keep up-to-date with technical advances in the industry.

“I’m here with the company I’m an apprentice for tonight – it’s good to show them where I’m learning and for them to meet my tutors too.”

The College is also becoming an IMI Centre offering IMI accredited courses that will allow businesses in the area to access their training courses locally.
