For my work experience I chose to do something in the mechanics field. I got what I wanted , and I'm working in a car garage in central london.
The job description says I will be involved in welding and being an MOT assistant , what can I expect as a " MOT assistant " ?.
Sitting in a car and opperating the controlls
Lights, horn, brakes etc...
Yeah it won't be anything major. They'll probably give you a check list and have you do the interior while the senior guy will do the oil, exhaust, brake pads etc. Although depending on which year your doing this in (10 or 12 or Uni) then they should show you the underside checks.
I did my work experenice as a mechanic. I helped the MOT guy often by operating lights and controls in the car whilst he checked them, and he got me to stick the probe in the exhaust.
When not doing the MOT's I worked with another guy sometimes just watching but I got to so things like pour in the oil, tyre pressures, undo/tighen bolts and fetch him parts.
Overall it was a good change from school and you will get to see what its like.
