The world of technology is expanding, and with it our need for electrical solutions. Electricians are in high demand and there are many industries in which you can ply your trade from domestic electrics through to large scale commercial projects.

Learn and develop the industry standard skills and recognised practices you’ll require as an electrician. Through a mixture of practical, hands-on training and theory sessions, you will learn about emerging technologies, health and safety, electrical principles and installation technology from qualified and experienced electricians, using modern equipment and facilities, with materials from both domestic and commercial environments.

Our course options allow you to start at Level 1 and progress through to Level 3, to ensure you are well qualified and experienced for a career in the electrical industry, or you could even progress on to a degree level qualification at university.
Simple EARN whilst you LEARN!

Get out into the world of work and gain qualifications relevant to the job and to your future by training through an Electrical Apprenticeship.
