Apprenticeship in Vehicle Maintenance and Repair (Intermediate)

This work based course develops the skills and knowledge needed to be effective within the vehicle maintenance and repair sector.
Course description: 

All training on this course is delivered either in the workplace or at college, on a day release basis.

Students are likely to be carrying out tasks such as routine light vehicle maintenance and inspections including servicing, repairing and replacing faulty parts and maintaining records.

Intermediate Level Apprentices at Level 2 (Service Technician) will learn how to diagnose, test and repair a range of vehicles including light and heavy vehicles, trailers, motorcycles, caravans and motorhomes

Entry requirements: 

No formal qualifications are required to enter this course. Apprentices who took their GCSEs more than five years ago and did not gain a C grade or above may need to take a literacy and numeracy test. Applicants will also be asked to attend a pre-enrolment interview.

Apprenticeships are open to anyone over the age of 16, whether they have just left school or have been working for years. As an apprenticeship is a work based qualification, applicants should either have an employer who has agreed to support them, or be seeking an apprenticeship position through our vacancies list. Once you have secured a position with an employer your training can begin. If you have an employer who is interested in supporting you in completing an Apprenticeship, please contact our Employer Partnerships Team on Freephone: 0800 328 3616 or email employerpartnerships@ccn.ac.uk


Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes designed around the needs of employers, which lead to nationally recognised qualifications. For further information, please see: www.apprenticeships.org.uk


Assessment is via a variety of techniques and in many cases will be based on performance in the workplace. The formal qualifications will generally be taught in a college setting, and assessed using assignments or tests, in order to ensure the apprentice has gained the underpinning theory and principles required for the role.

Academic progression: 

Successful students may progress to the Advanced Level (Level 3) Apprenticeship in Vehicle Maintenance and Repair.

Career progression: 

Following further training and development, apprentices can progress to a range of jobs such as a light vehicle diagnostic technician, service adviser, service receptionist or maintenance controller.


Training on the Apprenticeships programme is currently funded for apprentices aged 16 - 18 years at the time of enrolment. An employer contribution is required for those aged either 19+ or who have a level 4 or higher qualification.
