L2 Automotive Studies

L2AUTO
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr K. Meyer

A course which involves students learning all practical fields of Automotive Studies, incorporating Motor Industry Training Organisation Unit Standards. 

Students will gain knowledge of tertiary, vocational and leisure opportunities associated with Automotive Studies. Time will be spent both in the classroom learning the theory behind engines and cars, and in the workshop with hands on practical activities. Students will be diagnosing practical problems and making informed decisions. The learning will include trouble shooting, repairs and preventative maintenance. 

Students will be developing self-discipline and a range of practical skills that permit safe and correct use of tools and materials. During practical periods students are required to wear sturdy covered shoes and overalls (overalls supplied) to help keep dirt and oil stains off their uniforms.Because some of the same Unit standards are offered in both L2AUTO and L2TMEG courses, students cannot select both of these subject options.

This course will be assessed to a selection of Motor Industry Unit Standards and will lead into the Pre-Apprenticeship Automotive Course run by the BOP Polytechnic. Students will have the opportunity to gain up to 21 credits at L2.
