Ideally you will have completed a level 1 full time qualification and have four GSCE grades D to E or 9 to 3 (including maths and English).
You will be required to attend an interview at college and we request a school or college report.
If you are interested in working with cars and vehicles, then this is the ideal course for you. This is usually referred to as technician training these days, because of the importance of technology and technical work (rather than simply mechanical) in maintaining and repairing vehicles. There are many areas you could work in within the sector. This is a fast moving, dynamic and exciting, often challenging sector to work in. It can be very rewarding. The motor trade employs more than half a million people in the UK alone. More than 40 companies manufacture vehicles in the UK, and motor sport is a huge area. Eight Formula One teams are UK based.
If you have completed previous motor vehicle studies at level 1 then this is a perfect qualification to move onto. The course requires you to complete practical tasks relating to brakes, tyres, exhausts and routine vehicle maintenance, exams for each topic will test your knowledge too. Consider this qualification as a first year of a level 2 diploma in vehicle maintenance. There are many opportunities in the motor vehicle industry, having motor vehicle qualifications can open many doors in the world of employment.
This is an ideal stepping stone to the full level 2 diploma or an apprenticeship course.
