Training provider

The apprentices' journey begins with the development of the foundation knowledge and skills.

The second step is to carry out routine services and inspections before progressing to diagnosing and repairing complex systems on the vehicle.

Alongside this, apprentices will acquire the capability to strip and rebuild major components and acquire the soft skills and behaviours required to operate with colleagues and customers.

Assessment Includes: On-going assessment of soft skills and behaviours, a behaviour assessment, Knowledge and understanding tests at the end of Gateway 1 and 2, Skills tests at the end of Gateway 1 and 2.

The apprentice, employer and provider are required to maintain a log book that captures progress over the programme. This is followed by the synoptic assessment, of which there are four components: Log book (final year review to assess apprentice's progress), Behaviour Assessment, Knowledge Test (an in-depth, online test exploring knowledge/ understanding of the apprentice) and Skills Test (two-day practical examination of the skills of the apprentice).
