Action Research into Apprenticeships in the Vehicle Body Repair Industry, Including the Role of Vehicle Damage Assessors

The primary purpose of this research is to establish if there is a need for an apprenticeship within the vehicle body repair industry for Vehicle Damage Assessors (VDA). At the time of writing this project no such apprenticeship for this role exists, although a National Occupation Standard (NOS) for the role has been written. Again at the time of writing this has not been approved by government. The NOS lists the roles for VDA which range from NVQ Level 2 to NVQ Level 4, including the role of apprentice.
