Course Overview

If you are aged between 16 and 18 and have a passion for Motorsport, this one year course is ideal for setting you on your way to a rewarding career.

This Motorsport course is designed to provide you with an insight into life as a Motorsport Mechanic or Motorsport Technician and help you to develop industry-standard knowledge and skills.

The Level 2 Motorsport course is mainly practical-based, with training taking place in our £10 million Advanced Technology Centre, boasting its very own 4-Wheel Drive Dyno., Motorcycle Dyno., Engine Test Cell and Wind Tunnel.

Entry Requirements

Mandatory:

  • You must be aged 16 to 18 when the course starts in September

Desirable:

  • You should have a passion for cars and motorsport, and keen interest in working in the automotive industry.

If you have, or expect to achieve GCSEs at Grade 4 or above in English and mathematics you could advance your career path by starting on our Level 3 Triple Diploma (click here – need link to EA1FE475).

If you are a year 11 student applying for this programme, we will compare your GCSE results with the minimum target grades set for you by your school. This will help us decide whether this is your most suitable programme of study. Other students, including those from outside the area, will have an opportunity to discuss their qualifications and experience to make sure they too are studying at the right level. For some programmes, we might need to observe you carrying out certain practical tasks before we can make you an offer.

Qualification Obtained

Diploma in Motorsport Vehicle Maintenance and Repair (VRQ)

Essential Skills – English and Maths

If you achieve a grade 3 in GCSE Maths or English you will have to work towards re-sitting these subjects as part of your main study programme. At B&FC, this won’t delay your career journey because you’re working towards these subjects at the same time as your chosen subject.
