Motor Vehicle Studies Level 1 Diploma at Somerset College
This programme is designed specifically as a pre-Apprenticeship programme and meets the specific requirements that employers look for in a potential Apprentice.
The course will prepare you for a career in the automotive engineering industry by introducing you to practical and theoretical aspects of motor vehicle work.
The programme covers all aspects of vehicle servicing and some body repair.
No formal qualifications are necessary but an interest in motor vehicles is essential and you must be willing to work hard at your theory and practical studies.
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.
The work is based on practical activities that build into a portfolio of evidence, which supports entry on to an Apprenticeship or further study.
You could progress on to our First Diploma Vehicle Technology, study for the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) qualifications or find work as an apprentice.
There are opportunities for employment as a trainee motor vehicle technician in light or heavy vehicle repair and maintenance, a trainee vehicle body repairer and/or vehicle refinisher or a fast-fit technician.
