What qualifications will I get?

Depending on the level of your apprenticeship, you will qualify for an equivalent motor mechanic NVQ, with practical assessments and observations to help anyone who does not do well in an academic exam setting.

In many cases, much of your assessment will take place actually on the job, so you don’t face an unfamiliar environment and all the stress that can bring with it – and the qualifications you gain can count towards eligibility for higher courses or even a university application.

What are the benefits of a mechanic apprenticeship?

There are plenty of ways to study the theory behind engine tune-ups and replacing car parts, but at some point, you have to get your hands dirty to really understand how a car fits together and how to repair it when it’s broken.

A motor mechanic apprenticeship offers the perfect balance between the two – practical experience that will serve you well throughout your career, but also the qualification that you can show to employers as proof of your capabilities.
