Electrical

About

Electrical courses are delivered in our excellent industrystandard workshops, which will simulate real environments and give you practice of working in the electrical industry.

We have developed firm business links with local employers, providing great benefits to our students. Due to our business links, we have established a notable record for getting our students on to apprenticeships with reputable small businesses.

Having industry qualified and experienced staff is incredibly beneficial and vital to the delivery of our courses, as they are able to pass on their own personal experience to you. 

Our qualifications are offered through EAL, and these link directly to an NVQ and apprenticeship programme, which can be achieved once you gain employment within the industry.
