Level 2 will suit you if you are preparing for or just starting out a career in automotive accident repair and looking to gain or develop relevant knowledge and practical skills in the repair of accident damaged vehicles. Examples of the skills and knowledge you will gain are as follows: how to remove and refit vehicle body panels, panel repair and welding techniques.
There are no mandatory entry requirements for this Apprenticeship framework. However, employers are looking to attract applicants who have a keen interest in vehicle accident repair (body). Applicants must demonstrate a “can do" attitude and have at least basic numeracy and literacy skills on which the Apprenticeship will build.
You will be invited to attend an interview with the related curriculum area to give advice and guidance about the job role and qualification. You will be required to undertake initial assessments in Maths and English.
To be an apprentice you need to be working a minimum of 30 hours per week in the related occupation of your chosen apprenticeship and be at least 16 years old. Our Skills Coaches and Careers team can support you with this and we often have a good selection of employers looking to recruit an apprentice.
