What's Involved

Electricians install, maintain and repair electrical systems in industrial, commercial and domestic environments. Electricians might work in both indoor and outdoor settings. Electrical equipment and systems may include switchboards, motors, cables, fuses, thermal relays, fault current protection switches, heating, lighting, air conditioning and metering equipment as well as crime and fire alarm systems and renewable energy technologies.

You will be able to work on your own proficiently and work without immediate supervision in the most efficient and economical manner. You may also contribute to the design of electrical systems. Electricians are able to set out jobs from drawings and specifications and requisition the necessary installation materials.

Electrical safety is an important area of Electricians’ work. On completion of your work the electrical systems must be safe to use. You must adhere to safe working practices without endangering themselves or others. Installation Electricians work on the installation, testing, commissioning and maintenance of low voltage (less than 1000v) electrical and electronic devices and appliances.

This apprenticeship will last a minimum of 42 months and typically you would complete in 48 months. You will be required to attend college 1 day a week.

This is a Level 3 Apprenticeship.

Entry Requirements

A minimum of 5 GCSE’s Grade A*- C including: • GCSE Maths Grade C/ 4 or Functional Skill in Maths Level 2 • GCSE English Language Grade C/ 4 or Functional Skill in English Level 2

Where will it take me?

To obtain the Electrotechnical apprenticeship certificate, apprentices must achieve the following: • Level 3 Electrotechnical Qualification (Installation) • AM2 • ICT The overall apprenticeship grade will be derived only from the AM2 grade (pass, merit or distinction).

On successful completion of the apprenticeship, the apprentice can apply to be recognised by the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) against the Engineering Council’s UK Spec as an Engineering Technician. This will enable them to have professional recognition and adopt (EngTech) in their title.

The apprentice will be issued with the appropriate Electrotechnical Certification Scheme (ECS) card by the Joint Industry Board for the Electrical Contracting Industry (JIB), and will also be able to apply for ‘Electrician’ status from the JIB (Joint Industry Board for the Electrical Contracting Industry).

Course Assessment Method

Apprentices will have to complete online assessments along with an onsite portfolio of evidence, throughout the duration of the apprenticeship. The End Point Assessment will be an externally set and marked assessment (AM2). For the last 30 years, the AM2 has been recognised within the electrotechnical industry as the benchmark of an individual’s occupational competence, providing verification of competence for tens of thousands of electricians. The AM2 will assess the apprentice’s skills, knowledge and confirm behaviours against the theory and performance criteria within the apprenticeship.
