Is this the apprenticeship for you?

Electricity is the backbone of modern society – and this Level 3 Installation Electrician and Maintenance Electrician Apprenticeship prepares you for a career in the electricity industry.

In a hands-on environment, learn how to install, maintain and repair electrical systems in a number of industrial, commercial, and domestic environments, both indoor and outdoor. Get to grips with how a whole host of different equipment and systems work, ranging from switchboards to motors to crime and fire alarm systems and renewable energy technologies.

You may also contribute to the design of an electrical system, taking it from drawing to reality.
