If you are looking to become a Qualified Electrician you've come to the right place.
An apprenticeship is the electrical training route preferred by the industry. Traditionally apprenticeships were only for young people, but now employers in England and Wales can receive funding for apprentices of any age.
To become an electrical apprentice, you will need to be employed in the electrical industry and be carrying out a suitable range of works to gain the knowledge, skills and behaviours required within the apprenticeship standard. There are no upper age limits to becoming an apprentice; it is never too late to learn!
If you have already started your electrical training, you can swap to one of our apprenticeship standards at any point, as soon as you have suitable employment you can transfer to an apprenticeship. For example, if you have completed a Level 3 Diploma and just need to complete NVQ Level 3, you can still swap to an apprenticeship to complete your portfolio and AM2.

These apprenticeship standards offered are funded by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) or via the levy, where applicable.
Employers may have to contribute 5% towards the cost of the apprenticeship if they are not an apprenticeship levy payer, if they have more than 50 employees or if you (the apprentice) is over the age of 19; we can advise on this.
Apprentices must be paid at least the minimum wage. and must work at least 50% of their working hours in England to receive funding.

Recognition of prior learning means using a person’s previous qualifications, which have already been achieved, to contribute to new learning of knowledge, skills and behaviours within the standard.
We may be able to reduce the overall length of the apprenticeship if a candidate has previously completed any electrical qualifications, such as the C&G 2365, 2330 or other awarding body equivalents. This will be discussed during initial skills scans.
Example: If a candidate apprentice has completed a full C&G 2365 Level 3 qualification, they will only need to complete evidence of skills gained whilst working with a mentor, Functional Skills (if applicable) and AM2 end-point assessment.
