Length of Study 2 years part time Is the Course for Me? To succeed in an Apprenticeship programme you need to be focused on the career you have chosen; you might even want to gain some work experience in your chosen field before you start your course. You will need to be prepared to work hard both within the workplace and at College so that you get the best out of the opportunities to learn. Ideally you will have already found employment with an employer who is willing to support you through the Apprenticeship programme. If you haven't already found an employer then the College will support you in looking for suitable employment. You must be in employment in order to undertake an Apprenticeship programme. Entry requirements for Apprenticeships are flexible. Practical skills count and your interest in the area of work you've chosen. You must be keen to work and keen to learn. Apprentices in Motor Vehicle would be expected to have a minimum of 4 GCSE's, English and Maths at grade D or above plus two others at grade E or above How will I Study? You will normally attend College one day per week to learn the underpinning knowledge required for your framework components. Practical skills will be developed through a combination of study at College and of activities that you will undertake in your workplace. Assessment will be via observation, written tests and assignments. You will be required to compile evidence for your NVQ portfolio in the workplace. An assessor from College will visit you in the workplace on a regular basis to carry out assessments for your NVQ award. How will my Progress be Measured? Your progress on the programme will be reviewed a minimum of every 10 - 12 weeks. This is normally done in your workplace. Targets will be set that reflect your individual needs. Previous learning, training and experience can be taken into consideration. Progression On completion of an Apprenticeship your career prospects will have significantly improved and you can progress to technical or supervisory positions in the industry. You might also choose to progress to further study with an Advanced Apprenticeship. Course Code PSF0131 Award Level 2 AwardBody
