Advanced Electrical Installation
An Apprenticeship in Electrical Installation will develop skills and give valuable experience of a variety of routine Electrical Installation related activities. Learners will work in a construction environment where your duties could encompass many areas of Electrical Installation such as installing wiring and electrical systems and components. An advanced apprentice will be expected to complete installation, inspection, testing and commissioning of electrical systems, devices, appliances and equipment in domestic, industrial, commercial, leisure and agricultural buildings, structures and environments.
One day a week at our Tottenham Centre or Enfield Centre and the rest of the time working closely with an employer.
Average Duration: The apprenticeship runs for 24 months
The Advanced Electrical Installation Apprenticeship is made up of a framework which includes:
- Installing Electrotechnical Systems and Equipment (Buildings, Structures and the Environment) NVQ Diploma Level 3
- Maths Functional Skills Level 2
- English Functional Skills Level 2
- ICT Functional Skills Level 2
- Employment Rights and Responsibilities
Students can progress on to full time employment.
The apprentice is expected to attend college to attain knowledge training and complete exams and complete workshop tasks. In addition to that they will also be trained by the employer and expected to complete an online e-portfolio.
Applicants will be assessed and interviewed to demonstrate that they are able to cover the range required by the relevant NVQ at work. In addition, the apprentices are expected to carry out initial assessments in English and Maths where they would be expected to ideally achieve Level 2 in both subject areas. If an apprentice has GCSE grade C and above in English and Maths they do not have to do functional skills as a part of the apprenticeship.
