What opportunities will this course give me?
On completion and achievement of the Standard, progression routes will be provided and discussed with the individual to enable them to make informed choices about continuous professional development.
What will I be learning?
A motor vehicle technician services and repairs light vehicles such as cars and vans and works either in dealerships that focus on a particular manufacturer, or for an independent garage that deals with many different makes of vehicles. They work on all the systems found within the vehicle. The nature of the work ranges from replacing simple parts through to solving complex faults with the use of diagnostic methods and equipment. The day-to-day tasks faced by the technician are constantly changing, driven by the introduction of ever more complex technologies and diagnostic techniques.
The initial focus will be on the development of the underpinning knowledge, the competence to complete foundation tasks effectively and the behaviours required, enabling the individual to operate effectively under supervision. With the foundations in place, the next step will be to develop the competence to carry out servicing, repair and diagnostic procedures.
Why is this course for me?
Apprentices will develop their knowledge, skills and behaviours through on and off-the-job learning and are expected to attend Eastleigh College on a day release basis. Apprentices will be certificated for the apprenticeship after completion of an end point assessment.
Unless exempt on entry, apprentices will be required to achieve Level 2 Functional Skills in English & Maths prior to undertaking end point assessment.
It is expected that it will typically take three years for the apprentice to attain the required level of competence in the workplace although it may be less if the individual already has significant training and practical experience. The formal knowledge and skill elements could be completed in less than three years if the apprentice had acquired previous experience or training.
Your progress will be continuously monitored and supported by an Apprenticeship Officer.
