What's covered?

Apprenticeship standards are employer-led, meaning that employers can specify exactly what's required from an apprentice in each specific role. They outline the skills, knowledge and behaviours required to carry out your job role which are delivered and carried out both in the workplace, through teaching & learning and independent learning. All the skills, knowledge and behaviours must be met in full for you to achieve your Apprenticeship. Some standards involve additional qualifications.

Employers within the Automotive industry have designed the approved apprenticeship Standard for technicians who service and repair heavy vehicles. Role Profile - Heavy Vehicle (HV) technician services, inspects and repairs HVs, categorised by the Department of Transport as category N2 or N3, and associated trailers, with the associated ancillaries. They work in either a dealership that focusses on a particular manufacturer, or for an independent garage, franchise or large fleet operator that deals with many different makes of vehicles. The nature of the work ranges from replacing simple parts through to solving complex faults with the use of diagnostic methods and equipment. The day-to-day tasks faced by the technician are constantly changing, driven by the introduction of ever more complex technologies and diagnostic techniques.

What do you need?

Entry requirements - It is recommended that to optimise the chance of selection, candidates can demonstrate an interest in how the HV industry operates as well as ability to work in an organised and methodical way to analyse and solve problems; be able to demonstrate mechanical skills; also demonstrate an ability to communicate both orally and in writing. Apprentices without level 2 English and maths will need to achieve this level prior to completion of their apprenticeship through functional skills.

How you are assessed

Assessment overview - Skills, knowledge and behaviours are assessed by competencies being displayed in the workplace, observations, employer feedback, assessor progress reviews, evidence collating and the employer enabling you to fulfil the requirements of your Apprenticeship. On programme assessment will include various coaching and mentoring assessment methods. These assessments are deigned to review the behaviours, knowledge and skills against set gateway criteria. In addition you, your employer and the college are required to maintain an off the job training log evidencing new skills and knowledge being learnt over the duration of the apprenticeship. The final grading of the apprenticeship will be carried out through an End Point Assessment, by an independent assessor

How Long?

Duration 36 months It is expected that it will typically take three years for the apprentice to attain the required level of competence in the workplace although it may be less if the individual already has significant training and practical experience.
