Course description

Vehicle Body and Paint Maintenance Entry Level 3:

This is a one-year course for inexperienced learners who wish to study and gain practical experience in a wide range of automotive repair trades. The course is ideal for those learners who like to work with their hands and want to see an end product. This is a full-time course of about 16 hours' attendance per week. We aim to give learners the best opportunity to experience a wide range of skills associated with the vehicle repair industry, including Body Repair, Vehicle Welding, Customising, Paint Refinishing, Body Fabrication and Vehicle Valeting.

There is a range of assessment, with the emphasis on practical observations carried out within our well-equipped workshop. Other assessment will be in the form of oral questioning and written answers. On three occasions during the course, learners will have enrichment weeks. This might involve visits to London, Blackpool, Coventry Motor Museum or RAF Cosford, walking over Dovedale or the Malvern Hills, go-karting, mountain biking, golfing, table tennis, and self-defence, to name but a few. Successful completion of this course will give automatic entry on to our Body Repair Level 2 or Paint Refinishing Level 2 full-time programmes. An alternative to full-time is an Apprenticeship programme in Paint, Body or MET (subject to a suitable placement being available).

Additional entry requirements

You will attend a formal interview, followed by an assessment designed to make sure that this course is the right one for you. Keenness and enthusiasm for the automotive industry are essential.
