What will I do?

Work experience will play a vital role in your progression, as you will have the opportunity to work alongside industry professionals on live projects. You will benefit from visits from industry professionals, and go on trips to construction sites to see how different trades work together to complete projects.

What's next?

Is working at a desk all day your nightmare? Electricians are always on the move, and no two days are the same. Being part of a trade which uses constantly changing and exciting technology, means that you must be ready to adapt and learn at every opportunity. You must be able to think logically, be able to work under pressure and work to the highest standards of health and safety.

Is it for me?

At the end of your course you will have gained enough valuable work experience and industry contacts to kick off your career in the industry. With a growing demand for skills, you could start your own business. You could also continue your studies, developing your skillset in your chosen trade. You could also further your education whilst earning a salary, with an apprenticeship.

If you are aiming towards studying at Level 3, you will need at least four GCSEs at minimum grade 4/C, including English and Maths. However, these requirements and any others specific to the course, will be discussed at interview.
