We provide a Motor Vehicle Studies course which offers an award, certificate or diploma to NVQ level 1 through a 1 year or 2 year route. (This includes knowledge and performance based studies). This course is aimed at participants who are keen to gain foundational qualifications for a career in the automotive sector.

We have also recently offered an IMI accredited VRQ Level 2 course in Motor Vehicle Studies for those students who would like to continue their learning at Hope Initiatives and are preparing for a Apprenticeship route into the sector.


Hope Initiatives provides excellent value and service through highly qualified technicians providing tuition to small groups of a maximum of 9 students per cohort.  Our workshop is shared with our professional commercial garage which gives our students a “real-life” experience of a working garage.

We have worked with students from

Shrewsbury Academy, Thomas Adams,  Meole Brace and Sundorne Education Centre (TMBSS).
