Our hands-on course introduces you to the world of vehicle service and repair.

In addition to actually working on cars, you will learn the theory you need to support your skills. You will learn all about the workings of engines, gearboxes, suspension, brakes and electrical systems.
There are no formal entry requirements, but an understanding of different tools and the ability to undertake physical work will help! You will also need to be able to commit to the course. You will learn something new every day, so good attendance is a must.
Over the year, you will complete up to twenty practical activities in our workshop and these will be marked by your tutor. You will also complete written and online tests to show that you understand the theory behind the course.
If you are serious about a career in automotive engineering, then you will want to stay on at college and study our Diploma in Light Vehicle Maintenance & Repair, Level 2
