I work in a PRU as a Practical Skills Instructor. For years I have seen the mechanical confidence and ability of different pupils grow as they work with Auto Skills, clearly the approach taken to the necessary theory works as well as the hands on workshop experience, and several pupils (male and female!) have gone on to College and apprenticeships.
