This Level 3 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 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 and the Level 2 Diploma in Light Vehicle Maintenance and Repair. This course also includes a mandatory Level 3 Maths unit and academic writing skills for those wishing to progress to university.
You must have achieved BOTH Maths and English GCSE at grade 4 or above and the full Level 2 Diploma in Light Vehicle Maintenance and Repair. You should also have passed the mechanical comprehension entrance test, alongside 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. Level 3 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 3 Diploma in Light Vehicle Maintenance and Repair and the Level 3 Maths units, with a successful application you would be eligible to apply for a Foundation Degree/Degree in Motorsport at university. Without the Level 3 Maths unit, your pathway would be restricted to an apprenticeship (if employment is secured).
Even with the Level 3 Maths unit, and with employment as an apprentice, you can progress to the Advanced Apprenticeship Level 3 Diploma in Light Vehicle Maintenance and Repair Competence (VCQ).
