Glasgow Kelvin College’s unique Kit Car Programme has been featured recently in The Complete Kit Car magazine, the only global monthly magazine dedicated to the world of kit cars and a touchstone for news on test drives, builds, technical guidance, shows and events.
The article focuses on the College’s trailblazing programme which, now in its second year, provides 14 and 15yr old pupils from Glasgow Schools with practical, hands-on automotive mechanical engineering and build skills at SCQF level 4 in an industry-standard workshop environment.
Run with the support of Glasgow City Council and in partnership with several Glasgow schools including Eastbank Academy, Whitehill Secondary, Springburn Secondary, Bannerman High School, St Mungo’s Academy, St Andrew’s Secondary, Smithycroft Secondary, All Saints Secondary, Lochend Community High School and St Roch’s Secondary to name but a few, the programme allows pupils to attend college two half-days per week where they gain skills in stripping down and building a kit car. In addition, they acquire employability and workplace skills which help them to build their confidence, solve problems and work as a team.
