EAL Level 1 Diploma in Electrical Installation
Learners who wish to undertake a Level 1 qualification in preparation for study at Level 2 which will allow them to become electrical improvers or with employment fully qualified electricians at level 3.
This qualification allows the learner to acquire basic knowledge and craft skills of electrical installation. It does not require occupational evidence from the workplace, so it is suitable for learners who currently do not work within the electrical Industry, and may wish to prepare for study at Level 2.
The qualification facilitates progression to further engineering and building services qualifications. It gives the learner an opportunity to practice and be assessed in a secure environment on the basic electrical systems. The qualification does not make the individual an electrician, but allows progression to further study.
There are no formal entry requirements for this qualification although Centres should ensure that the
learners have the potential to achieve the units selected within this qualification.
The qualification has mandatory and optional units. The mandatory units cover health and safety,
environmental protection, installation methods, practical craft skills and electrical science. Optional units cover starting work in construction, preparing for an interview, managing study and developing learning skills and the opportunity to achieve higher grades in maths and English.
The qualification can be delivered completely at the Centre, with a mix of workshop and theory sessions with practical and theory assessments.
1 Year delivered at the Technical Academy with practical and theory sessions.
