Installation Electrician/ Maintenance Electrician – Level 3
If you are interested in a career within the Electrical industry, the Electrotechnical Apprenticeship will combine on-the-job training (with an Electrical work placement) and college-based activities, which will help you gain the knowledge in order for you to achieve your goal. Weymouth College has a purpose-built electrical training workshop facility, which simulates a domestic/commercial/industrial trade working environment. All of our lecturers and assessors have worked in the industry prior to joining the College and have up-to-date qualifications relevant to the trade.
GSCE Grade C/4 or Functional Skills Level 2 in English & maths. Functional Skills can be completed during the apprenticeship if required and upon successful completion of initial assessment. Applicants will also be assessed individually for suitability. Work placement must be in-situ before the apprenticeship starts. This can be found by either yourself and/or Weymouth College.
You must provide your own tools for use in practical workshop sessions. These must meet a minimum set of safety criteria; the College has an arrangement with a local wholesaler to provide a tool kit meeting these criteria for approximately £90. The College also requires you to purchase a materials package for the course. This is expected to be sufficient for the course and must be maintained in an appropriate working condition, breakages will need to be replaced; this is also available from one of the local wholesalers at a cost of approximately £80. These kits will be required for week four of the course. AM2 assessment can only be taken at a centre licensed by National Electrotechnical Training Ltd the current cost of this assessment is £650 .
