GCSE success for Motor Mechanic, Jordan

Jordan Howse

Jordan Howse attended secondary school in the North-East of England before moving to Cambridgeshire in 2019. Having left school without the grades he required in maths and English, Jordan signed up with Cambridge Regional College (@CRC_College).

Growing up with a keen interest in motor mechanics, led Jordan to enrol on the Level 1 Motor Vehicle course and he opted to study for his GCSE maths and English alongside. After completing the Level 1 course, Jordan progressed to L2 Motor Vehicle and in November 2020 he sat his GCSE maths exam, achieving a grade 4.

Jordan said,

“I wanted to gain a better understanding of how cars work. I also wanted to secure my maths and English GCSEs to give me the possible chance of pursuing a career in the motor vehicle industry.”

Jordan continued with his studies, and on GCSE results day 2021 he received the welcome news that he had achieved a grade 4 in GCSE English and passed his L2 Motor Mechanic qualification.

Jordan added,

“I was anxious waiting for my results. I am very self-critical, so I didn’t allow myself to believe that the news would be positive. I was over the moon reading the email that confirmed I had passed my GCSE English and Motor Vehicle qualifications. I am very grateful to Cambridge Regional College for their support in helping me to achieve my goals.”

Throughout his studies, Jordan has worked for a local garage as a Service Sales Advisor, and he now plans to enter full-time employment with the same company in their motor vehicle workshop.
