Outstanding grading for the quality of our education

We received an “OUTSTANDING” grading for the quality of our education.  This grade is testament to our industry leading delivery team and supported by our in-house development team who are continuously improving our high class learning material.

Our apprenticeship team and training officers are from industry and provide outstanding support to our apprentices throughout their journey to becoming qualified electricians.
