Apprenticeship in Electrotechnical Technology

Want to be an electrician? With an electrotechnical apprenticeship, you can gain the skills you need to do so and earn while you learn!

With a skills shortage in the UK and demand for electricians at an all time high, there's never been a better time than now to get into the industry.

Electricians come in many different forms - you could find yourself working as a domestic electrician, completing small jobs around homes or you could train be a professional electrical installer, responsible for the design and fitting of electrics throughout a building.

The role you do and the training you receive will depend upon the apprenticeships available and the person who employs you. Regardless of which route you take, you'll receive authentic, practical training actually doing the work of an electrician, work towards qualifications and you'll also receive an apprenticeship wage while training to be an electrician.

Once your apprenticeship is completed, you can move onto further courses or find work with many different organisations throughout the UK who are looking for skilled electrotechnical workers.

Important Information about Electrical Apprenticeships

Electrical apprenticeships are considered to be a level 3 apprenticeship, also known as advanced level.

Those who complete these apprenticeships either generally have a relevant level 2 qualification already and/or are currently working for an electrician. You'll likely complete your electrical apprenticeship at level 3 while also being employed, gradually completing elements over a four year period.

If you do not have any qualifications already, consider taking courses at East Durham College first before considering an apprenticeship in the electrical sector.
