NVQ Level 3 Apprenticeship
NVQ Level 3 Apprenticeship
The Advanced Apprenticeship in Electro-Technical Systems specialises in Electrical Installation for Buildings and Structures.
From being an operative or electrical installer you will become an Installation or Maintenance Electrician.
You will be in a job that allows you to work supervised and as you progress to be able to work on your own and may require you to supervise others of a lower rank.
During the first year an Advanced Apprentice Electrician can expect to assist the electricians on site with tasks relating to the installation of electrical systems and equipment.
In the second year, you will be required to carry out basic tasks under supervision.
In the third and fourth years you will be expected to carry out skilled tasks including installing electrical cables and equipment in domestic, commercial and industrial environments, and the visual inspection and electrical testing of those installations.
The programme involves one day a week attendance at College to gain the knowledge for the Technical Certificate of the qualification.
The remainder of your time will be spent on site gathering evidence towards the NVQ assessment portfolio.
