In December 2018, our Motor Vehicle department received a taste of France when the College welcomed a group of Parisian students to the College.
This is the 2nd year that Carshalton College has taken part in an exchange programme which involved the Motor Vehicle department hosting a group of ten students from a Paris technical college: the Lycée professionel Jacques Brel.
The students took part in practical workshops and tutorials in our Motorcycle workshop and classes, which included a trip to the London Science Museum.
They also spent time on work placements with various local garages to receive valuable work experience supporting the garage’s repair and maintenance teams.
The College hopes to take part in the French exchange programme in 2019, which may involve some of our students visiting Paris!
