What's it all about? 

Do you like tinkering with engines and cars? Do you want to learn more about the motor industry and prefer a more hands-on approach to learning? Then our entry level study programme is ideal for you. It's the first step you can take towards achieving your ambition of gaining a career in the motor vehicle industry. The diploma will also include personal and social development opportunities.


If you are aged between 15 and 18 and are offered a place on the course of your choice, you will be invited to attend College Prep Days, which will give you the opportunity to get a head start on your time at the College. You’ll be able to get to know your lecturers and new classmates, and start your course! The next prep day will be held on Saturday 1 July, 10.30am to 1.30pm.


On successful completion you may progress to:

  • a level 1 course in motorsport or motorcycle repair at the College
  • an Apprenticeship in the sector, or
  • employment as an exhaust/tyre fitter or vehicle valet.
