ALERT : Change to May Half-Term dates: Half-term for students will start on Thursday 21st May 2020, online teaching will start again on Monday 1st June 2020. This is because your teachers are working on calculated grades
Note: You will have seen in the news that some schools/colleges are preparing for students to return on 1st June. This is not the case for us. Please continue with your learning at home until you hear otherwise.
Ardleigh Green Campus is open – only for those students that have been identified as needing to attend. All other Havering Campuses remain closed.
Are you interested in electrical installation work and wishing to become a qualified electrician? If so, this qualification is designed for new entrants to the Electrotech industry, providing you with the basic skills and experience you need. The course is available either full- or part-time. The part-time option is taken over either two evenings or one-day per week. This programme will be of particular interest to adult learners.
The course provides practical and theoretical tuition. There are a number of practical tasks that you will need to carry out during the year. This is combined with a high level of underpinning knowledge in workshop/site safety, electrical principles, science and regulations. It is approximately 50:50 theory/practical.
You will preferably already have GCSEs Grade A-C in English, maths and science. However, adult entry (over 19) will be considered based on work and other experience. Other Level 2 qualifications may be acceptable and are by agreement at interview.
You will also need a satisfactory reference and interview.
It is preferred that candidates are working in, or moving into the Electrical Contracting Industry.
Where will it take me?
Successful students with a proven track record of good attendance and behaviour can progress on to our Level 3 programme as a route towards achieving Approved Electrician status.
This will help towards gaining employment in the Electrical Contracting Industry and enable you to get onto the NVQ Programme which is also offered by Havering College.
