North London Garages GTA exclusively provides training services to the retail automotive sector. Our principal activity is delivering and managing apprentice training in the complete range of skills employed by businesses in the sector but the majority of which are in the technical disciplines of mechanical or body work.

Our mission is to create a business which is a model of excellence in supporting the whole retail automotive sector by offering a total training solution to the needs of all employers and for all those working, or wanting to work, in the sector, whether developing the skills of adults already employed, or recruiting and developing a new generation of young people interested in the industry.
The company began trading in 1970 and over the last forty four years has established itself as a local provider predominantly to the independent motor trade sector in North London. Since 1970 over 2400 apprentices and other trades and non-trade persons have achieved qualification through one or more of North London Garages approved training programmes.
Current Chief Executive is Colin Denton – “When I joined North London Garages in January 2013 I knew there would be some challenging times ahead as we looked towards re-establishing NLG as the number one automotive provider in North London. We met those challenges head on, setting up new training courses, refurbishment of the classrooms, workshops and internet facilities. Our apprenticeship numbers are growing steadily as more learners and garages want to work with a provider that puts the quality of teaching and learning as its main priority”.
