Buggy gives a lesson in life skills

Practical skills students are putting together an off-road buggy to learn how motor vehicles are constructed.

The South Cheshire College entry level learners have just two weeks to learn how to read technical diagrams,  use a range of different tools, and how to solve problems on their own.

Lecturer Matt Duncalf said: “This fantastic project will enrich the students’ time at the college.”

The group will record their progress by producing a step-by-step construction guide that will include photos.

The course is part of a programme for students with learning difficulties and disabilities that gives them the chance to learn key life skills in a realistic setting.
