As homes and businesses need more wiring, electricians are needed to install the right components. Join this growing industry with an Apprenticeship in Electrical and get ready to receive all the right skills and experience that employers are looking for. Get involved in the installation, maintenance and repair of electrical services, both inside and outside of buildings such as houses, hospitals, schools, shops and more.
To continually develop the quality of our Electrical Apprenticeship, we've introduced new Apprenticeships standards, developed by employer groups called 'Trailblazers'. Employers such as Willmott Dixon, Laing O’Rourke and Seddon know what they want from their employees, so they're best placed to describe what skills, knowledge and behaviours you'll need for your career in Electrical. This means our Apprenticeship will give you all the right skills you need to secure permanent employment or progress to further or higher education.
When you’re in College, you’ll learn in our modern Construction Block, using industry-standard tools and materials, overlooked by industry-experienced tutors; plus you'll have personal one-to-one support from your own dedicated Work Based Tutor, who'll visit you on site.
So, what does an Electrician do?
It's skilled work involving designing, installing and maintaining and repairing electrical systems. Electricians can specialise in a particular area, such as residential electricians and inside electricians, who work on the control systems, motors and electrical equipment in businesses and factories. Once qualified, you can expect to earn between £18,000 to £42,000 per year and with experience, you could progress to roles including Electrical Supervisor, Electrical Engineer, Foreman and even a Master Electrician.
