This course requires 2 options.

Level 3 Automotive Academy - Year 2. Two hours a day (Yr 13)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: C. Thompson

In 2022 there will be changes to some aspects of this course below but the aims will still coincide with the description below. 

There is now a garage type set-up at MHS and students will be trained in doing pre-WOF service type work, tyre changing and balancing and using the hoist to change filters etc. The below description generally is accurate but changes will be happening to align the training to an apprenticeship type of course, in consultation with MITO, (Motor Industry Training Organisation), for 2022. Students should have the opportunity to gain Micro credentials, through MITO. A micro-credential certifies achievement of a coherent set of skills and knowledge based on learning outcomes.  Students will be involved in practical work that will include authentic minor vehicle auto servicing. This will involve using our on – site garage.

The AWVA Automotive Academy is offered over two school years for two periods per day five days a week. For 2022 this course is being aligned with the needs of MITO, Motor Industry Training Organisation of NZ. Changes should allow our students to gain credits that contribute to their motor apprenticeship in future years. 

The course work is currently taught in partnership with MITO and Unitec (1 day per week over approximately 18 weeks at the Unitec campus in Year 2).  All the standards count towards the NCEA. A student must still select three other subject options for 2022. Students will also be encouraged to be part of the Evolocity Electric Bike Competition group.
Highlights of Year 2.
Students will attend Unitec one day a week usually in Terms One and Two and work in the tertiary level environment. Also, students will build a motorized Go Kart at school. (There is a charge to cover the cost of the motor if students wish to take the Kart home when finished). There will also be practical work at Massey High School, in our school garage and through work experience opportunities.
Successful completion of this course can allow students entry into a Polytechnic Level 4 course in any applied technology such as Automotive, Engineering, Carpentry qualification, or assist in gaining an apprenticeship. Students will have the opportunity to gain the following certificates.
Level 2 NCEA endorsed with the Manufacturing and Technology Sector Vocational Pathway Award or
Level 2 NCEA without the vocational pathway award. Some of the standards in the second year, (Yr 13) are Level 2 and some are Level 3.

Level 3 NCEA.
