Trade Skills 4U are very proud today. Why? Because yesterday we received our certificate confirming we have been accepted into the IET Centre of Excellence Scheme. The IET has a reputation for electrical excellence and the ‘IET Centre of Excellence’ programme is a natural extension of this work.
The IET Centre of Excellence is a brand new scheme designed to ensure high quality provision is recognised and provide a clear way for those seeking training easily identify the few providers who had invested in processes, facilities, staff and quality teaching to ensure they were able to meet these standards.
The scheme was developed when the IET identified that there numerous training companies delivering electrical courses but only small numbers of them actually delivered high quality training. This was backed by research papers published by SEMTA the SSC covering electrical installation and contracting professionals.
As a member of the Centre of Excellence we have been rigorously vetted on a wide range of criteria including but not limited to organisational procedures, facilities, awarding body reports, achievement rates, health and safety, training staff, technology, equipment as well as existing customer recommendations.
The majority of City & Guilds electrical courses offered by Trade Skills 4U are accredited by the IET and accepted into their Centre of Excellence. This will include a full range of inspection and testing courses from the 2392 right up to the more difficult 2395. It will also include the very popular City & Guilds 2382-12 17th edition course, City & Guilds 2393 Part P course as well as a number of accredited Solar PV Courses.
We are also very happy that there has been further recognition of our foundation courses the City & Guilds 4141-01 Electrical Installation Work within a Domestic Dwelling and the City & Guilds 4141-02 Fundamental Electrical Science Technology for Installation Work Courses which are an excellent way for those new to the industry to get a grasp of the basics and take their first steps into the industry.
If you want to find out more please see our dedicated IET Centre of Excellence section which lists all the courses covered.
We have grown to be the UK’s leading C&G electrical trainer based on the fact that we deliver more C&G electrical qualifications than any other provider in the UK. We have achieved this by focussing on the quality of our training provision and as such it means a great deal for us to be the first members of this scheme with such a prestigious organisation.
