This Level 2 course is for those wishing to specialise in Light Vehicle Maintenance and Repair for a career in the motor industry or for those wanting to progress to Level 3 and even university-level courses afterwards.
It is designed for school and college leavers who have already achieved grade C or above in BOTH Maths and English. There is also an optional Level 3 Maths unit available for those wishing to progress to Level 3 or higher.
You must have achieved BOTH Maths and English GCSE at grade 4 or above and should have passed the mechanical comprehension entrance test, alongside having a successful interview.
You will study:
Underpinning knowledge will be assessed via online external tests and assignments for all units. Practical activities are assessed in our centre using externally set criteria. M3 Maths and G3 job roles are assessed by written assignments and online exams.
You must provide your own steel toe-capped boots to be worn at all times in the workshops. A £40 fee will be required for College overalls, sweatshirts and T-shirts.
Subject to achieving the Level 2 Diploma in Light Vehicle Maintenance and Repair (VRQ) and the optional M3 Maths units, you can progress to the Level 3 Advanced Diploma in Light Vehicle Maintenance and Repair. Without the M3 Maths unit, your pathway would be restricted to an apprenticeship (if employment is secured).
Even with the M3 Maths unit, and with employment as an apprentice, you can progress to the Intermediate Apprenticeship Level 2 Diploma in Light Vehicle Maintenance and Repair Competence (VCQ).
