What's Involved

This course is highly practical and is for those who wish to gain a foundation qualification in Electrical Installation work. Students will become competent in a range of tasks and skills. An integral part of the course is the inclusion of numeracy and literacy, to enable the student to reach National Test Level 2 standard.

Entry Requirements

GCSE grade 3 in English language and maths is required. It is beneficial if science has been studied too. Further requirements are a satisfactory interview and reference.

Where will it take me?

As part of the route to achieving Approved Electrician status, successful students with a track record of good attendance and behaviour, can progress on to the City and Guilds 2365 Level 2 course.

Together with further study, this will help you to gain employment in the electrical contracting industry, under supervision, as an electrician's mate.
