Course Overview

This course is suitable for school leavers looking to take the first step into the electrical industry.

The course will teach you the initial knowledge and practical skills to design and install a variety of electrical equipment ranging across domestic, commercial and industrial applications.

The course is delivered in our newly opened, purpose built construction centre. Equipped with the facilities and technology to provide an enhanced learning environment to equip learners for industry.

To support your college experience, you will be encouraged to seek electrical work experience alongside your studies, allowing you to put your skills into practice with on-site experience.

Before starting your course, a kit list will be sent to you detailing equipment and books that you will need for the course. This includes PPE, such as steel toe-capped boots, alongside recommended course textbooks.

Assessment Methods

You will be taught through a blend of classroom-based theory sessions, as well as practical lessons in our electrical workshops.

This qualification is assessed through two final assessments, which are considered together in awarding your qualification:

  • A written theory exam
  • A 2-day practical workshop assessment

Progression Options

Following on from this course, you may choose to apply for an apprenticeship on our Electrical Installation Apprenticeship Level 3 course.

I was really interested in the College because it has a good selection of tools and machinery, great tutors and I liked the workshops. It also offers courses from Level 1 to 3 in furniture making and design, which meant I could start at Level 1 and build my skills, plus I study maths alongside my course.
