Activate Learning is a forward-thinking education group working across further and higher education, schools, apprenticeships and training. We transform lives through learning.
The motor vehicle industry keeps everybody moving. Specialist skills are needed by private individuals and industries such as public transport, HGV, retail delivery, breakdown recovery, emergency services and motorsports. If you have recently completed your Level 1 Diploma in Vehicle Maintenance, or you have prior experience in the industry, this is the next step in your training. The programme develops the essential skills you will need to begin working in the motor vehicle industry.
Study with us and you’ll train in a real garage workshop, working on real cars. Whether you do an apprenticeship or a full-time programme, you’ll face new challenges and stretch your abilities in a realistic working environment. On this programme you will learn the attributes, values, skills and attitudes for working in the motor vehicle industry. The programme is designed to increase your employability and prepare you for progression into a motor vehicle apprenticeship or onto a full time Level 3 programme.
Our state-of-the-art facilities include hybrid vehicle diagnostic equipment and the latest vehicle lifts. We have also been fortunate to receive donations of new vehicles from manufacturers including Hyundai, to offer students the chance to train on a range of engines. Our teachers create an exciting and supportive environment for students - offering insights and tips from their careers in the motor vehicle industry.
Successful students can progress to an apprenticeship in motor vehicle or on to the Level 3 programme at Banbury and Bicester College.
