Upon completion the Apprentice will achieve:
- NVQ Level 2 (Apprenticeship) or NVQ Level 3 (Advanced Apprenticeship)
- Functional Skills Certificates
- IMI Technical Certificate
- Apprenticeship/Advanced Apprenticeship Completion Certificate
Training is delivered via a residential block release programme, by Emtec, the Guild’s training partner, at their state-of-the-art Training Academy in Nottingham.
The Guild, in conjunction with ‘The Institute of the Motor Industry’ (IMI), has designed the Restoration Apprenticeship Programme specifically to develop technician apprentices from any area across the UK; the aim is to equip them with the highest level of traditional skills and practical ability within the Vehicle Restoration industry.
In addition, apprentices receive regular assessment visits (at their employers’ location), by a dedicated Skills Trainer.
The Apprenticeship and Advanced Apprenticeship are structured around the IMI’s Classic Vehicle Restoration L2 & L3 Diplomas. In addition they include Employment Rights & Responsibilities (ERR) and Functional Skills in Maths, English and ICT at the required level.
The total duration of the programme is typically 36 months. It takes 18 to 24 months to complete level 2 and a further 12 to 18 months to complete level 3.
In addition to the Vehicle Restoration Apprenticeship, the Training Academy is also able to offer Apprenticeships, Training and Assessment for Light Vehicle Maintenance & Repair, Vehicle Parts Operations, Automotive Customer Service, Vehicle Paint Refinishing, Vehicle Body Repair, and Auto Electrics.
