Electrical training routes launched
The Electrotechnical Skills Partnership (TESP) has launched a series of recommended training routes to provide clear direction on the right paths to becoming a qualified electrician.
Hosted on the Electrical Careers website, the routes are also designed to educate school leavers and those looking to upskill within the industry. The advice given to all is that an apprenticeship is the preferred route into the industry, as it provides the essential work-based experience needed to develop knowledge, skills and competence over a period of time.
Ruth Devine, Chair of TESP and Managing Director of SJD Electrical, said, “These routes aim to reduce the confusion around electrical training and promote what is valued by employers and will ultimately lead to qualified status.
“We need to send a clear message to individuals and careers advisers on the right ways to join the industry, progress and embed the skills and judgement that comes with work-based learning and experience.”
