On Monday 3rd June Matthew Coghill gave his presentation about basic car maintenance. Our group braved the chilly winds of the College’s rear carpark so that Matt could take us through the basic checks required to keep a vehicle running smoothly. His own perfectly maintained vehicle was brought in so that the class could see how it’s done, including the fitting of extra features such as lights.
Matt then took the class through the process of locating the correct oil and other products for specific vehicles. He provided a great deal of information in simple and easy-to-understand language and answered a wide range of questions with patience and confidence.
As he plans to work in the automotive industry, Matt’s ability to communicate with customers will be a crucial skill in his working future. The success of this session made it clear to everyone that he has excellent communication skills, even though he often prefers to remain quiet in class.
