This course is ideal if you’ve thought about what the Motor Trade might be like and want to know what a Mechanic has to do at work. It will give you the opportunity to work on a range of vehicles using tools and machinery that you would see in a garage. The course will also develop your entrepreneurial skills as well as a focus on customer services.

What will I do?

Functional Skills in Maths and English is also an equally important part of the programme.
