Engineering Through Motor Vehicle

Engineered Racing’s Motor Vehicle Suite provides an engaging alternative to traditional education.

Attendees of our sessions can expect to be tutored in the Motor Basics in a professional garage environment and gather a skillset ideal for progression into places of Further Education or the Workplace.

In our fully equipped motor vehicle workshop, students are tutored in the theory, processes and procedures of motor vehicle maintenance and repair. Various vehicles are available to help the students learn including road vehicles, kit cars, track day cars and electric vehicles, along with a variety of hand and power tools all related to the motor and engineering workshop alike.

Sessions involve students sitting through a short theory session, presented on a particular aspect of a motor vehicle and its operation followed by a practical activity focussed on embedding the knowledge gained from the theory session.

Assessments are performed by means of written tasks, practical activities, and the manufacture of a specific engineering tool, which is performed over the duration of the course and together provide the evidence required to achieve the qualification.

Course Overview

NCFE Level 1

We have developed and will deliver our own suite of Level 1 Units for a customized qualification in Engineering for the academic year 2021/22; this allows us to continue to work to a rolling assessment framework that is managed in-house and at regular intervals, rather than a ‘final exam’ approach.

Our in-house training is recognised by NCFE, one of the UK’s biggest awarding organizations.

Students will work towards a customised combination of the following units:

➢ Health & Safety in the Engineering Workplace

➢ Developing Skills in Fabrication Assemblies Using Riveting

➢ Performing simple mechanical maintenance on a given system

➢ Developing Skills in Using Drilling Machines / Tools

➢ Developing Skills in Using Cutting Machines / Tools

➢ Developing Skills in Assembly Procedures

➢ Developing Skills in Using Hand / Pistol Drills

Guided Learning Hour Requirements

NCFC Level 1 = 130 hours


It is vital that students attend at least the number of guided learning hours recommended for each specific qualification.

Accredited achievement can only take place once these hours have been fulfilled (and evidenced on attendance registers).

We offer an open invitation for all prospective new students to drop in for a visit and tour. We run out of a unique and specialist workshop environment which can sometimes not suit all learners therefore we strongly recommend all new starters to meet us before starting to ensure that they feel comfortable and ready for the provision.
