A little more information about us:

Alternative Education Provision in Motor Mechanics


The Archway Youth Project is a non-profit organization that operates as a social enterprise. The Organisation aims to enrich the lives of young people through a range of educational workshops and recreational activities.

AYP’s accredited courses are consistent with the organisation’s interest, to deliver progressive provisions that reflect the changing needs of young people. Our qualifications, which are accredited by the Institute of Motor Industry (IMI Awards), reflect the increasing specialisation in contemporary motor vehicle engineering, and therefore, are more relevant and specific to the automotive industry. These include the following:

  • Externally verified Professional Development Certificate (PDC)

  • Entry Level 3 / Level 1 Award, Certificate or Diploma in Introduction to Vehicle Technology (QCF)


Foundation Learning:

Under this provision, we offer a practical approach to assessment, such as visual questioning techniques, to stimulate and interest learning. Our Foundation Learning provision is also embedded with tailored support for learners who are in the process of making the transition from education to work life. The target is to engage learners aged in practical tasks that are set within the retail automotive context. The qualification level for this programme is set at Entry Level 3 and Level 1.


For schools and Organisations that run enrichment activities and/or provisions aimed at bridging the gap for under-achieving students, AYP will assist in developing innovative programmes that meet the government’s criteria for using funds allocated for Pupils Premiums. Please contact us to explore options available under this scheme.


Additional Provisions:

The Archway Youth Project works with its partners in offering functional skills (Math's and English Level 1) tutoring support and mentoring for students who are most in need.


The Archway Youth Project therefore anticipates that our provision would bring greater benefits to any young person who endeavor's to pursue pathways in the automotive industry. AYP also anticipates that these additional qualifications would increase attainment/achievement levels, and subsequently, enhance their opportunities to accessing specialised areas within the motor vehicle engineering sector.
