Level 3 Apprenticeship in Motor Vehicle Body and Paint

This programme will provide you with the knowledge and practical skills to work as a technician in a race team or to progress to Higher Education before taking up posts in design and development, team management or as a race engineer.

Apprenticeships combine on the job and off the job training. On the job, an apprentice will work with an employers mentor or line manager, learning the skills on site and working towards the competency element of the qualifications. Off the job, apprentices work with their assessor and have access to resources, such as a workbook, to ensure they learn the knowledge elements of the framework. If the required level of Maths, English and ICT qualifications have not been previously achieved or where qualifications are no longer in date, apprentices must also complete functional skill qualifications in these subjects. These would be completed through agreed delivery methods and support including classroom, distance learning, e-learning and assessor support. This framework will enable learners to develop their motor vehicle body and paint, knowledge and experience. It also enables an individual to gain valuable work experience and obtain qualifications whilst working with an employer. Units you may study include: Panel beating skills Panel replacement techniques Mono-shell rectification on light or heavy vehicles Rectifying minor damage to vehicles Producing a painted finish to new or repaired body panels Welding techniques Motor vehicle body misalignment skills Resistance spot welding techniques Vehicle construction materials Adhesive bonding operations Employability skills You will attend College one day per week to develop gain underpinning knowledge required for your framework components. Your employer will provide on the job training to develop your practical skills.

There are no formal entry requirements, however GCSEs in English and Maths at grade 9-4 or A*-C are desirable. If you haven’t already achieved a GCSE grade 4 or grade C in English or maths, then you will study either GCSE or Functional Skills English or Maths alongside your other qualifications.

This qualification will help you to meet the development and qualification needs to advance your career in motor vehicle. After completing your apprenticeship you could progress on to a higher level apprenticeship. Studying motor vehicle paint and body could lead to a career as a senior technician, vehicle damage assessor, vehicle refinisher, body repair technician and many other opportunities.

The apprenticeship will primarily be assessed by direct observation of your work practice, oral questioning, written assignments, professional discussion, learning journal/diary and witness testimony. Your assessor from College will visit you in the workplace on a regular basis to support you throughout your apprenticeship. Functional skills are assessed through external tests. Where possible these tests will be taken on the day you attend College. However, you may have to attend on a different day subject to the timetabling of external assessments.

I really enjoy my apprenticeship. I feel I learn more as I am doing it every day and gaining lots of experience. I really get a feel for what it would be like to be in a teaching role in a school. I particularly enjoy supporting the children and helping them progress is rewarding. I still come into College one day a week in the evening and the tutors are fantastic. I would recommend an apprenticeship, it is definitely worth it, I have enjoyed it so much and would definitely recommend it to anybody. Amy-Mae Wilson

Its a great way to get qualified as well as gain work experience whilst getting paid, with many other opportunities available. Edward McMullen
