We have developed an electrical apprenticeship standard to help you find new talent and fill the skills gaps within your organisation.
Electrical skills are in decline in the UK, with the electrical industry being one of the worst affected by an increasing shortage of trained workers. (UK Commission’s Employer Skills Survey)
Apprenticeships are key to tackling the skills shortage in the UK.
Whether it’s powering people’s homes or working on large-scale energy projects, our hands-on electrical apprenticeships will help you to develop the next generation of your workforce. With lessons taking place in our purpose built workshops, mimicking industry standard, apprentices will learn about all of the required electrical principals and installation techniques.
Our Intermediate Apprenticeship in Electrical Installation/Maintenance are an ideal way to tailor train new recruits to your way of working. With our next cohort starting in March.

Here are five more reasons to hire an apprentice:
1) Increases Productivity
96% of apprentice employers say apprentices are beneficial to their business. What’s more, the average apprentice increases business productivity by £214 per week. These gains include increased profits, lower prices and better products.
2) Inspire loyalty
According to research by Populus, 80% of employers felt apprenticeships reduced staff turnover, which implies that apprentices are loyal to the company that invested in them. With apprentices said to be motivated, flexible and loyal, they are more likely to stick around in the long term.
3) Provides greater flexibility
Hiring an apprentice enables your new starter to give a helping hand to your existing staff, leaving them to do what they do best.
4) Meet your business needs
The recruitment process is often time consuming. You’ll find yourself sifting through countless candidates to find the select few that possess the skills that meet your business needs. But by bringing an apprentice on board, you can provide training that’s tailored to the requirements of your business.
5) Exceptional training and facilities
As part of their training programme, apprentices will study part-time at Walsall College’s new engineering campus on Portland Street, which includes state-of-the-art equipment that reflects the current and future needs of the local engineering industry.
