21st September 2021

Stratford-upon-Avon College has partnered with Listers Group Ltd to help develop the next generation of vehicle technicians.

Listers, one of the largest privately-owned dealer groups in the UK, will support students studying motor vehicle courses and will offer workplace tuition support and supply students with several vehicles to work on in their workshops.

The cars supplied by Listers Group will be equipped with the latest technology and provide students with first-hand experience on a wide range of vehicles.

Students who successfully complete the course will have the opportunity to secure future employment at one of 51 Listers Group sites across the country.
