What you will Study

You will study engine diagnostic and rectification, vehicle chassis systems diagnosis and rectification, vehicle auxiliary systems diagnosis and rectification, and vehicle inspection procedures.

Maths and English (and sometimes IT) are key elements of apprenticeship programmes and if you do not already have a GCSE at grade A*-C in these subjects you will be required to study Functional Skills at the appropriate levels.

Skills in Maths and English will support your apprenticeship programme, assisting you with assignment writing, research, job applications, presentations, managing your own finances and interpretation of data, to mention just a few. They will also help you in the future. Most employers are looking for ability in these areas and the majority of university courses require you to have Maths and English GCSEs at A*-C.This is why the development of Maths and English is so important, whatever your field of study.

How you will Learn

The course will be delivered by a mixture of classroom work and workplace training.  An essential part of the course is individual study and workplace mentoring.

Assessment will take place at periodic periods throughout the course of study before individuals enter the end point assessment that is carried out by an external body.

Nature of Assessments on the Programme By continuous assessment in the workplace and by written and oral testing in College.
Entry Requirements

Level 2 qualification in a related subject or completion of a Level 2 apprenticeship.

You will also need Level 2 literacy and numeracy qualifications. If you do not have the relevant level of qualification, we can assess your current level of literacy and/or numeracy.
