KS4 - 14-16 Learners

Motorvation Training specialises in teaching younger 14-16 year old learners. Some learners are referred to Motorvation Training with social, emotional, behavioural and learning difficulties that could seriously impede progress in mainstream schools. Some learners have been referred to us as their attendance at school  is below par, or they are at risk of exclusion because they just do not fit into mainstream schools.  At the time of their referral, many students have also experienced long term difficulties in relation to their lives outside school, and may possibly be in the care system.  Motorvation Training has vast experience of teaching Looked After Children, and we have the time and ability, to put in place, interventions that help LAC learners achieve their full potential.

Motorvation Training holds The Matrix Standard, which is fairly standard these days, but it is a very rigorous process to go through.  As Motorvation Training works with numerous schools and Local Authorities, we usually form part of OFSTED Inspections for these contract providers, which is, on average, at least two inspections each academic year.  We have always been part of a Good or Outstanding overall rating.  Knowing that we could be part of an OFSTED Inspection at any time makes our Quality Control extremely robust.  Some schools and colleges can go years without being inspected, and then get stressed when it is their turn for inspection.  Motorvation Training has high standards to begin with, so we are quite comfortable with walk in visits at any time. 

  Who Has Devised 14-16 KS4 Learners Qualifications?

 Working with our awarding body, The IMI, we have put together a Level 1 framework for qualifications that are approved by The DfE for inclusion in the list of qualifications that count in KS4 performance tables.  The KS4 Qualifications count as one GCSE, regardless of the qualification size, and will count towards Progress 8.

What Are The KS4 Qualifications About?

The content of these qualifications has been designed to give the learners a broad understanding of the engineering sector.  The mandatory, core and self development units help build this broad understanding, whilst the specialist units will allow for a limited amount of specialist knowledge to be gained and the limited development of specialist practical skills.
These qualifications are designed to be focused on the taught content and are aligned to a number of progression routes in engineering, as well as linking to core GCSE curriculum areas in maths and science.


The ethos at Motorvation Training is progression.  It would be easy work to do what a lot of providers do, and teach a qualification until the young person finishes school, but what happens Post 16?  We love our learners to progress and continue to learn with us, and so each qualification enables progression onto a wide range of further vocational qualifications in the engineering and associated sectors.  Some of our learners have excellent knowledge and are ready for apprenticeships or Higher Education before they have even left school.

All school learners start on the Entry 3 Diploma Transport Maintenance

Progression onto Level 1 Diploma in Transport Maintenance

Progression onto Level 2 Diploma Vehicle Inspection

Progression onto Level 3 Diploma Light Vehicle Maintenance 

Our Level 3 qualification holds 48 UCAS points, so as well as offering an entry point to employment, Motorvation Training can also offer an entry point to University.


This qualification will be assessed by using externally set and marked on line tests, internally marked practical tasks and written assessments. There is also a written project which encompasses the synoptic assessment element to this qualification.  Teaching staff at Motorvation Training all hold substantial industrial experience, teaching credentials and assessor qualifications.  Oberservations of Teaching and Learning is carried out at regular intervals, and all unaccredited work is moderated through RARPA.
