A great introduction to understanding how electricians work. You'll learn the basics of electrics in the home. You'll also study cable management systems like chunking and conduits in industrial set ups. You'll have visits to trade shows to help you see the latest developments in the industry. Our guest speakers will give you the inside view of what it's like to achieve and earn in the sector and what makes you attractive to employers.
There may be materials you need to help with your studies. You'll either make a one-off payment for these when you enrol, or you'll buy them during the course. Your tutor will talk to you about this at interview or in your first class (if you don't need an interview).
Depending on your course and circumstances, you may be able to get funding to help with materials fees. Please check with us when you come in for interview or enrolment.
You'll complete theory workbooks and practical assignments.
Three GCSEs with maths A*-E/9-2; OR other related qualifications and experience.
Progress on to one of our Level 2 courses and improve your knowledge of electrics or look for an apprenticeship and earn while you learn.
