The ABC Level 1 Award in Automotive Studies has been developed to provide an introduction to the automotive sector. The structure and nature of the qualification provides the ideal route for learners to progress from the ABC Entry Level Award, Certificate and Diploma in Motor Vehicle Studies Entry 3 on to a higher level of study and skills acquisition, such as automotive apprenticeships, as well as employment.

The Award in Automotive Studies has also been developed to support Key Stage 4 learning in literacy, numeracy and science. There are opportunities for learners to apply their literacy, numeracy and science knowledge to workplace scenarios.

The ABC Level 1 Award in Automotive Studies has been approved by the Department for Education, in the technical award category, for performance points and can be used in the Progress 8 tables.


The Level 1 Award in Automotive Studies will give learners a broad understanding of the automotive sector whilst developing the numeracy, literacy and science knowledge applicable to the industry. This can be further enhanced by progressing onto the Level 2 qualifications in Motor Vehicle Studies which will develop their knowledge further.
