Apprentices learn on the job, building up knowledge and skills, gaining qualifications and earning money all at the same time.

You will do work-based training with an employer. You are paid a wage. The apprenticeship will involve working towards a Vocational Qualification (QCF), Functional Skills and a knowledge based qualification.


Apprentices will attend college one day a week with the rest of the time spent in employment.

The Vehicle Maintenance and Repair suite of qualifications includes the following common tasks in each career route: removing components; assessing components for wear and  serviceability; replacing components and testing after repair.

All career routes require a high level of practical skill and a degree or problem-solving ability, especially Auto Electrical.  To achieve the skill level and knowledge required in this area you will probably attend college on either a day or block-release basis over the apprenticeship period, which might be expected to last two years.
