Electrical Courses

Many of the electrical installation courses for electrical apprentices are fully funded by the government and are free of charge for students aged 16 to 18.   However a contribution to the cost of the course is required from the employer for trainees aged 19 to 24.  Courses may be block or day release and the Level 3 qualification will require trainees to be working  in a permanently employed position.  To find out more about NVQ, BTEC and City & Guilds electrical training you can read the article about electrical engineering and apprenticeship courses.

TAMWORTH- I currently looking to change trades from the IT Industry to the Electrical Industry. I have gained my Part P Full Scope Level A, BS7671 and PAT Testing 2377 Qualifications as well as various Electrotechnical and Health & Safety certificates. I have some experience installing IT CAT 5/6 cabling but only have 5 weeks practical training gained from my Electrician’s course. So now I am hoping for someone to give me the opportunity to fulfil my ambition to become a full electrician, by gaining on site experience in the electrical industry as an electrician’s mate. I live in Tamworth, West Midlands and have a full driving license and also possess my own tools.

Many thanks,

AREA- I am currently completing a level 3 City & guilds 2365 Electrical installation level 3 Diploma, I understand that competence is key, but in order to reach such a standard, I need to be able to obtain experience in live scenarios.

I have a professional work ethic and a keen determination to learn and expand on knowledge which I’ve acquired as a student at Lambeth College, I posses basic but key elements which are needed to function and create time effective progression, such as a consistent level of high punctuality, good sense of initiative and great passion.

Being a physically and mentally fit combined with my years as a student, i feel that if the opportunity to work is a possible, I could continuously strive and rapidly expand my development as well as become a potential asset to your unit.
Thank you. email- Ikkecampbell @

Hi my name is Carl Barton, I am 25 and am looking for an opportunity to work as either a electricians mate, trainee or apprentice.

I am currently studying the City & Guilds 2357 Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Installing Electrotechnical Systems and Equipment (Building, Structures and the Environment) at my own expense therefore no education costs or assistance will be required by any future employer – I hope this shows that I am a serious and credible candidate.

I am a reliable, outgoing and fun person who can work equally within a team environment or independently. I hold a full UK driving licence and am willing to work an initial free trial to prove my worth.

So, if you have any potential opportunities or could benefit from a spare pair of hands then please do not hesitate to contact me via carl_11_15 @

CHELMSFORD, ESSEX. I am seeking employment within the Electrical industry to start a new career. I am currently studying towards the qualifications required and need to gain experience to back up my qualifications and complete my course as part of the course requires evidence in the form of written statements, photos and observations made by an assessor. Personally I am really excited and confident about this change of career and can not wait to start working in the industry.

Although my experience is limited I have tried to do as much as possible however without qualifications, experience or supervision I’m not going to take on more than I’m comfortable with. So far I have replaced a shower and a pull cord switch, replaced an oven, counter sunk hob and some light fittings on different occasions for a couple I have become friends with through the restaurant I work at the moment and I will include their contact details over the page as references. I have also replaced a shower and replaced some damaged outside lighting for some one I currently work with. I have fitted a new oven for my Landlord and replaced a faulty shower for my parents as well as my experiences at the college I attend. Contact details for references are attached.

Personal Statement

Before deciding to change my career I worked in the hospitality sector as a manager for some of the biggest companies and brands in the nation, which has awarded me with great customer service skills and the ability to work extremely well as a member or as a leader of a team. Although I have really enjoyed working in hospitality I have done so for a long time and wanted to get back to practical hands on work and start a new career with a real option of eventually becoming self employed. After leaving school I studied as a motor vehicle technician and worked in the motor industry for a few years. However the garage I worked for closed down and with very little experience I was bottom of the pile for employment, which lead me to work in hospitality.

Education and skills

• I have a CITB essential electrics certificate and will be undertaking more exams in the near future. E- Garyjhawkes @

BIRMINGHAM . looking for a position to take me on as a trainee. Practical experience is what I am looking for and anything else after that is a bonus so I am willing to work on any basis, whether it be temporary, part time/full time or free. I got my City and guilds 2330 L2 and already completed my 2365 L3 in electrical installation. Now seeking for employment to progress onto NVQ3.

I am reliable and mature with a good work ethic. I enjoy a good laugh and I can take everything with a pinch of salt. I am a fast learner and am definitely hands on, so I will not be afraid to get stuck in when needed.

BIRMINGHAM. My name is Jonathan Eggar and I am 31 years old. I am about to complete my C&G Level 3 2365 qualification and I am looking for a job opportunity so I can progress onto an NVQ. I also have the 2392 Inspection and Testing qualification and the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations inc. Amendment No qualifiaction 1. I have funded the entire cost of the courses myself and I am willing to fund the rest in order to get to the position I want to be in.

I live in the Birmingham area but i am prepared to travel anywhere in the midlands. Pay is not an issue for me, I am willing to work for minimum wage if it means getting the on site practical experience I need. I would even work for free on a trial basis to prove my worth.

I am a hard working, highly motivated individual who is keen to learn of experienced electricians. Can anyone help?

Many thanks

BRISTOL, FILTON. Hi my name’s Paul, I’m 22 and currently in the middle of doing my EAL level 2 in electrics. I’m looking for a work placement (or preferably an apprenticeship) so that I can gain experience and also complete my level 3 at the same time!

I’m at college Thursday and Friday each week and am finishing the course in Sept 2013. So I’ll be able to work full time from then on wards.

I’m not the most experienced, but I do work hard and want to succeed. I look forward to any replies. Feel free to email me for more info.

COALVILLE, LEICESTERSHIRE. My name is Mark Benson I am looking any possible electrical positions/ Adult Apprenticeship’s.
Since i am over the age for funding on the apprentice scheme i would be willing to fund this myself.
I am looking for a total career change and simply need someone to give me a chance to show i am a hard working and reliable employee.
I have paid for and put my self through college in the evenings and completed C&G 2330 level 2 electrical installation
and in December 2012 i completed Level 3.
I am more than willing to complete any more qualifications in the evenings that will help me in my working life
I have just completed and passed the 17th Edition Course along with the CSCS test.
At Stephensons College i am registered as a mature apprentice as i would like to complete my NVQ level 3, and 2394/2395 Test and Inspection.
The one thing i do need is on site work experience. I believe that working as an electricians mate would give me
invaluable training in the real work and help develop the techniques and theory i have already learned.
I just need an opportunity to gain work based experience to show my dedication to this industry.
I am totally prepared to take a wage drop and i am flexible with working hours.
I realise i have no direct work experience in this industry but i have been working since the age of 18 and have a mature approach to
training and wish to gain more knowledge & experience in the electrical industry.
i am based in Coalville, and would love to train and work for a local company long term.
I am also willing to work for free in the evenings or Sundays if there is no job vacancy at this time, just to try and gain some work
I would also be prepared to try and fund any more course’s that i would need to complete if this would help me gain
employment within the electrical industry.
My cv is available to anyone who would like to view it.

many thanks Mark Benson Email- markbenson116 @

MANSFIELD, NOTTS. Hi, I have recently retired from the Army after completing my 22years service. I was employed as the units Sgt Vehicle Electrician. I am currently nearing the end of my resettlement course from the Army as a fully qualified electrician. I am doing C&G 2330, 17th Edition, Part P, PAT Testing and NVQ 2356. I am trying to get a foot in the door and would very much appreciate someone that could take me on so that I could do my NVQ and therefore gain the much needed experience required in this job. I have 22 years of electrical and electronic engineering experience which helps me to be able to cross-over into this specialised trade. I am very hard working, punctual, and extremely dedicated in what I do. I look forward to hearing from you.

My location is Mansfield, Nottinghamshire ( but willing to travel if it means getting an opportunity)

KETTERING- I’m currently at college two evenings a week studying city and guilds 2365. I live in Kettering, Northamptonshire but I am willing to move/travel. I am looking for any electrical work or employment to progress onto a NVQ.

One thing I thrive is to launch myself into a career that is exciting as well as rewarding doing something that I’m passionate about, gives me drive and determination to aim to be better than the best. Electrical work is very suited to my personality with the personal skills I have already achieved alongside being very self motivated and organised. I’ve previously obtained experience in the industry, I’m looking to gain more knowledge, direction and improvement if somebody would take me under their wing as such.

I am a conscientious person who works hard and pays attention to detail. I’m flexible, quick to pick up new skills and eager to learn from others, I also have lots of ideas and enthusiasm. I’m keen to work for a company with a great reputation and high profile such as yours. I believe I could fit easily into your work force, I found it challenging yet satisfying working in a mostly male dominated environment where I took this in my stride, above all it has been extremely pleasing to be treated equally with respect from co-workers.

I have excellent references and would be delighted to discuss any possible vacancy. I am available for interviews at any time, currently I hold an ECS card enabling me to start work immediately.

May I take this opportunity in thanking you for your time.
