Vehicle Maintenance and Repair Apprenticeship Level 2 at North Lindsey College

Course description

Apprenticeships are employment led programmes designed for young people aged 16 - 24. You will have a job within a garage or within a vehicle maintenance team where you will earn real wages and combine this with learning technical skills. You will also come to College to develop your practical skills and to learn the underpinning knowledge. 

There are two routes within vehicle maintenance and repair. The light vehicle route is for technicians who primarily maintain and repair cars and light commercial vehicles. The heavy vehicle route is for technicians who primarily maintain and repair large goods vehicles. 

The Apprenticeship in Vehicle Maintenance and Repair is made up of the following components:
