Electrotechnical Advanced Apprenticeship at CLARKSON EVANS
Work-based training with day release attendance at Clarkson Evans purpose-built training centre:
As a new starter you would be given a full induction so that you are aware of such issues as health & safety, company background and company procedures. You would also undergo initial assessment so that we can design an individual learning plan. Almost immediately, you would go out on site so that you can start to gain basic practical experience and build up your skills quickly.
On average, you would spend four days a week on site and one day a week at the training centre. Some of the lessons in the training centre involve practical work and some are spent in a classroom learning the theory.
You would work towards gaining an Electro-technical Advanced Apprenticeship. This will consist of the EAL NVQ Level 3 Diploma (which includes the AM2 Test), plus Functional Skills in Mathematics, English and IT. The subjects covered will include health & safety, installing wiring systems, inspecting & testing electrical installations and diagnosing & correcting electrical faults.
Clarkson Evans usually accept applications for Advanced Apprenticeships from anyone who will be aged 18 or over at the start of training. Applicants should preferably have GCSE grade Cs or above in English, maths and a science subject, although applicants without these grades may be considered.
Applicants applying via another employer will be considered from aged 16 or over. Again they should preferably haveGCSE grade Cs or above in English, maths and a science subject as this is an advanced electrical course.
You would need to pass examinations, undergo practical assessments, complete homework and collect a portfolio of evidence demonstrating your practical ability in the workplace.
All Clarkson Evans apprentices will be trained and encouraged to become team leaders, having responsibility for their own team out on site. After gaining further experience there will be other opportunities such as possible promotion to supervisor or manager. A number of former apprentices now work in the office as project managers and three of the directors joined the company as apprentices.
