Aspiring automotive professionals at Eastleigh College reap the discounts and benefits from Halfords Trade, as they receive their very own trade card.
Halfords Trade supports upcoming specialists within the trade by rewarding them with a Halfords Trade card, which offers impressive discounts on tools, materials and equipment associated with their area of work. The company supports students across the country offering them the opportunity to build up their toolkit and knowledge of products before entering the industry.
Richard Gilbert from Halfords Trade, visited Eastleigh College’s energetic Motor Vehicle students to highlight the benefits and responsibilities of the discount card, and presented students with their own trade card. With just one SnapOn ratchet costing around £110, students could purchase a toolbox with all the basic tools required for their future role for under £100, giving students the opportunity to build up their range of personal tools during their time training at college.
George, a Level 2 Motor Vehicle student at Eastleigh College is already using the skills and knowledge he’s learnt on his course, to work on his own car outside of college, and is one of the many students to benefit from the trade card. He adds, “I’ll definitely use the trade card to top up my own tools I have at home, because it’s giving me the opportunity to practice outside of college. I’d eventually like to own my own garage so it’s good to be able to start building up my own equipment now.”
The College prepares students for the workplace and their transition into employment, through a hands-on approach to learning and links with employers. To find out about student success stories within the motor vehicle trade, please click here.
