Vehicle maintenance students at Northampton College will be able to hone their skills on state-of-the-art equipment thanks to a donation of £20,000 worth of engines from BMW.

Two petrol engines and one diesel engine were handed over to the college by BMW to help train their apprentices, giving students the chance to work on up-to-date machinery and get to know the parts and mechanics used in modern vehicles.

Chris Allen, from the college’s Vehicle Maintenance and Repair department, said: “We are delighted with the new engines and extremely grateful to BMW Group UK and their logistics partner Great Bear Distribution.”
