Motor Vehicle Level 2 Intermediate Apprenticeship at New College Durham

Course description

Your Apprenticeship Framework is made up of various components which include: • 

  • NVQ - this is achieved through a portfolio of evidence gained from carrying out your day to day activities in the workplace.  You will be supported by a College Assessor who will help you gather this evidence and work with you to produce the portfolio. • 
  • Technical Certificate - this is the qualification you will complete by attending College on a day release basis.  The content will provide you with the practical training and theory you need to carry out your job at work. • 
  • Key Skills - you may need to complete a Key Skill qualification in Application of Number and Communication.  However, depending upon your GCSE grades this may not be necessary. • 

While attending College you will also complete other aspects of the Apprenticeship Framework. The Level 2 Apprenticeship normally lasts two years, but an exact course duration will be agreed with you at the beginning of the programme. You will be required to provide a portfolio, which will include evidence of written projects and assessments.  Evidence from your workplace may include photographs of your work and/or signed testimonies from your employer or supervisor. 

Entry requirements

There are no academic requirements for this programme but you do need to be working to take the qualification. You also need to show competence in both knowledge and skills.
