Our courses are for learners who wish to develop a career in the automotive maintenance and repair industry or individuals who want the opportunity to develop occupational knowledge and skills to carry out automotive practical tasks. Each level is 1 year, 18 teaching hours a week spread over 3 days a week. English and Maths will be built into your course if your grades are below, in addition to Industry Placement.
The tutor will ask you what made you apply for the course, your interests, and any experience. They may also discuss your current school situation and predicted GCSE results. Finally, your aspirations for the future and how you are as an individual will also be discussed. A member of the ALS team may also be present to discuss any learning support needs.
