WHAT WILL I LEARN?
The technician will work on all the systems found within the vehicle. The day-to-day work ranges from replacing simple parts through to solving complex faults with the use of diagnostic methods and equipment. The tasks faced are constantly changing, driven by the introduction of ever more complex technologies and diagnostic techniques.
As part of the apprenticeship programme you will be required to undertake both on and off-the-job training. While your employer will be responsible for your training on-the-job (workplace), the College and your employer will be jointly responsible for your off-the-job training enabling you to help develop the right knowledge, skills and behaviours to become competent in your job role.
You will attend College on a day-release basis during term-time for the duration of your programme with us, to gain knowledge and develop some practical skills. Apprentices will typically:
- Spend 36 months on the programme;
- Complete a minimum of 20% off-the-job training;
- Complete an F-Gas qualification;
- Complete an E-Logbook, used to inform the End point assessment team of your progress and achievements throughout your apprenticeship
- Achieve level 2 in English and maths, if not previously done so.
- Take the End Point Assessment.
