The Apprenticeship Standard and Assessment Plan can be found here.
Written by employers, with input from sector specialists, the Automotive Glazing Technician Level 3 Apprenticeship Standard is suitable for those looking to further their knowledge, skills and experience in the automotive retail industry. Apprentices can gain knowledge and skills in repairing and replacing glazing units, and have a full understanding of business operations within the industry and their own role within the business to support excellent customer service.
With advances in vehicle safety through Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS), technicians need a high level of technical knowledge on vehicle systems and the relationship they have with the windscreen in the control of the vehicle.
Designed with different learning styles in mind, IMI’s solution ensures Apprentices are fully engaged and prepared for their End-Point Assessment (EPA).
An Autoglazing Technician repairs and replaces windscreens in the full range of automotive vehicles on the road today. All new entrants to this occupation will be required to gain a basic understanding of glass knowledge, skills and behaviours before moving into advanced techniques to ensure all vehicles are worked on safely.
Technicians could be employed in a range of different situations including national windscreen companies, independent windscreen companies, body repair shops and main franchise dealerships.
It is expected that it will typically take three years for the Apprentice to attain the required level of competence in the workplace, although it may be less if the individual already has significant training and practical experience.

Employers will set their own entry requirements. During the selection process it is recommended that the Apprentice demonstrates the following qualities:
English and Maths at Level 2 (or equivalent) is required to be held by the Learner prior to the EPA. IMI provides solutions to any Apprentice that does not have a L2 (or equivalent) in Maths or English at the outset.
There are no requirements for formative assessment. However, employers are recommending that, in addition to the formal EPA gateway, there are also on-programme gateways in place. The on-programme gateways can be used to review the Apprentice’s knowledge, skills and behaviour, as set out by the gateway criteria. This will also confirm that the Apprentice is meeting expectations at the EPA gateway prior to their EPA.
