Automotive Academy first for Warwickshire College

05 September 2005 #SMMT News



The Automotive Academy has announced that Warwickshire College has become the first ever recipient of its Academy Validated mark.


The Academy Validated status represents an agreement with the College to deliver the highest quality of training and assessment designated by the standards set by the Academy. By becoming a validated provider, Warwickshire College will deliver Automotive Academy courses to the UK automotive industry and provide assessment to industry standards.


Warwickshire College has been delivering automotive courses for many years, backed by a host of companies throughout the West Midlands, including Land Rover, Jaguar and Autocraft. The Academy has validated them to deliver globally competitive training at national curriculum standard. The first Academy programme to be delivered by Warwickshire College will be Business Improvement Techniques Level II.


Congratulating the College on the achievement, Dr Alan Begg, Chief Executive of the Automotive Academy said, ‘Warwickshire College is the first organisation to be given our ‘Academy Validated’ mark of approval. It is a reflection of the consistent quality of their training, the knowledge of their staff and the respect held for them by the industry. Warwickshire College is the first of many bodies who will gain this status. By being an Academy validated provider, employees know that the training they receive is of high quality, totally relevant and fully approved by the automotive industry.’


Ioan Morgan, Principal of Warwickshire College commented, ‘We are delighted to be working alongside the Academy in delivering Academy programmes and are proud to be the first college to gain this important recognition. We have always put our clients and customers first and worked in partnership with them. This has resulted in a portfolio of top class automotive companies coming back to us time and time again.’




  • Validation awards will be regularly assessed and failure to maintain the standards will result in loss of both certification and recommendation.
