ACAUT2
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: C. Thompson

Recommended Prior Learning

Open entry.


In 2022 there will be changes to some aspects of this course below but the aims will still coincide with the description. There is now a garage type set-up at MHS and students will be trained, over the two years, 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.

The AWVA Automotive Academy is offered over two school years for two periods per day. The course work is taught in partnership currently with MITO and Unitec (1 day per week over 18 weeks at the Unitec campus in Year 2). A student must still select three other subject options for each of the two years. Students will also be encouraged to be part of the Evolocity Electric Bike Competition group.
Year 1 is made up of Level 2 standards and Year 2 is made up of Level 2 and Level 3 standards, some of which are delivered by a tertiary provider.
Highlight of Year 1
Students will build a mini motorcycle which they are able to take home on completion of the course, free of charge.
Highlights of Year 2
Students will attend Unitec, one day a week usually in Terms Two and Three 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 particular, on the school racing car 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.
