Motorheads, need some info!

I'm not thinking of running a garage, but I'll need a part time job and I'm thinking of working as a mechanic or sort of mechanic's assistant as an option, as I have skills in doing most kinds of mechanical repairs (brakes, suspension, transmission, could do an engine with dedicated books, proper tools and a little supervision)

So would that be legal if I worked in a garage and was doing some car repairs, at least as long those were supervised by mechanics with qualifications? Is that practiced, that some guys in garages have formal qualifications and some not?
