This Advanced Level Apprenticeship covers the installation of electrotechnical equipment. The electrotechnical industry plays a key role in other industries – e.g. construction, engineering, manufacturing – and electricians use specialist skills to tackle a variety of projects.
Electricians can be employed by many different organisations: electrical contractors, companies that provide a range of electrical and electronic services, specialist operators, and even local authorities. The industry carries out projects like wiring new shopping centre’s or sports stadiums; and installing CCTV systems.
Because this is an Advanced Level Apprenticeship, apprentices will be expected to have strong practical skills and advanced abilities. You’ll need to be able to follow technical drawings and understand health and safety regulations.
