Employers have designed the new Apprenticeship Standard for Autocare Technicians which replaces the Light Motor Vehicle Repair & Maintenance Apprenticeship programme.
New standards typically focus on a number of gateways and an End-Point Assessment with an approved assessment organisation.
An Autocare Technician carries out a range of services and repairs to cars, car derived vans and light goods vehicles.
The technician requires a unique combination of technical, retail and customer service skills, and will use a range of tools, measuring and diagnostic equipment to identify & repair simple system faults.
Apprentices will learn how to diagnose, test and repair a range of vehicles from cars to vans, including electronics and electrical repairs.
The apprenticeship focuses on phases and gateways to prepare you for your End Point Assessment with an approved assessment organisation.
- you will attend some off-the-job training
- compile evidence of tasks completed in the workplace
- undertake assessments and gateway test
- complete and End Point Assessment
Typically it is expected that it will take 30 months although this may be sooner if an individual has signification prior training and practical experience.
This apprenticeship programme is divided into 14 groups within 3 phases, which will be typically completed over 30 months, although this may be less if an apprentice has evidence of prior learning.
At each of the gateways apprentices undertake set assessments to ensure competence and readiness to progress onto the next phase.
