Birmingham Electrical Training (BET) was founded in 1991 by a group of local electrical contractors as an organisation dedicated to assisting young people in the West Midlands to gain access to the electrical industry and also provide local electrical contractors with a dedicated high quality apprenticeship training provider.

BET is a leading electrical training provider based in Birmingham, delivering electrical training to apprentices and local electricians. BET is based in Hockley near the city centre in Birmingham and has its own dedicated training centre. Currently BET supports over 300 apprentices and works with 120 local electrical contractors.

BET support over 300 apprentices, and in the 2019-20 academic year achieved an overall achievement rate of 78%, this percentage is above the national average for the last year..

We work and organise electrical apprenticeships with local electrical contractors who provide employment and ‘on the job training’, which contributes evidence for their NVQ logbook. ‘Off the job’ training is delivered at our dedicated training centre in Birmingham by our dedicated team of tutors and training officers.

BET and its staff has a commitment to providing the best quality training for the next generation of local and national electricians by uniquely providing electrical apprenticeships that are the recognised form of entry into the electrical industry.

BET believes that it provides the young person a good grounding and the relevant industry approved education providing the help and support through the transition from school education to a successful career in the electrical industry.

We also offer commercial training in the installation and commissioning of electrical systems and equipment, upscaling courses for electricians.


We manage apprenticeships for a range of electrical contractors and provide on-site assessment and “off the job” training.
