You will cover all aspects of vehicle servicing and repair plus the following units:
- Vehicle practical work towards Apprenticeship framework requirements

The work is based on practical activities that build into a portfolio of evidence, which will support entry on to an Apprenticeship or further study.
- College interview and initial assessment.
- Candidates should be at least 16, have a good standard of general education to GCSE level with pass grades of D or above in English, Mathematics and Science, or a Level 1 qualification or demonstrate to the College on interview that you can cope with the course demands.
The work is based on practical and theoretical content. With the assistance of your lecturers you will be expected to complete a personal portfolio made up of practical job cards, which will be assessed. You will be made aware of your progress throughout the course with regular, obtainable short-term targets.
Alternatively you could opt to progress on to our Level 3 Diploma in Motor Vehicle Repair and Technology, study for the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) qualifications or find work as an Apprentice.
