Motor Vehicle Apprenticeship
Motor Vehicle Apprenticeships normally last for two years during which time you will attend our Training Centre or a College one day per week for 2 years, following a Level 2 Diploma in Light Vehicle or Heavy Vehicle Maintenance Repair. The remainder of your time is spent with your employer following the National Vocational Competance Qualification (N.V.Q) Level 2 and Functional Skills as laid down by the Institute of Motor Industry (IMI) and the City & Guilds, leading to a Certificate of Apprenticeship.
Motor Vehicle covers trades such as:
- Heavy or light vehicle maintenance & repair
- Body repair and painting
The training includes all aspects of site and motor vehicle such as:
- Good Housekeeping

Like all employees, apprentices must still receive a wage. The National Minimum Wage for apprentices is £2.73 per hour. However, as skills develop, many employers tend to increase wages
February to August. Most apprenticeships commence in September of each year.
