Access to Mechanics

What

In partnership with GTG, Access to Industry are delighted to be offering a new course aimed at providing young people who have a keen interest in mechanics with a pathway into the industry. It will help them to expand their knowledge and skill sets, gain real practical experience, and build lasting relationships with employers.

Students on the course will be supported by a dedicated Caseworker throughout, who will then continue to support them with progressing into positive destinations within their chosen field once the course is completed.

Students will achieve a City and Guilds SCQF Level 4 Award in ‘Introduction to Vehicle Systems Maintenance’. Students will also achieve an ‘Adult Achievement Award’. There is also the potential for students to progress onto an apprenticeship or a work placement in a garage or auto-trader.
