The fast and furious future of cars dazzles motor vehicle students

Motor Vehicle students at the College’s Basildon Campus were recently visited by Graham Noakes, a Senior Technician at Sytner BMW in Harold Wood. Graham gave the students a talk about electronic communication within a modern vehicle. The packed hall learnt about the advancements in technology and the new features of cars such as self-parking, massage chairs and vehicles that automatically slow down when you approach a speed camera.

College cook-off gives food for thought

One of those students who could stand the heat and stayed in the kitchen was Josh Wright, 20, Grays. The Level 3 Catering and Hospitality student said of the experience: “It was good to see what the Southend students do and equally for them to see what we do over in Thurrock. It was good fun seeing our different styles of presentation. Today was really good because it was against the clock; if you didn’t get it done you didn’t send any food any out but I’m used to that as I work in London.”
