C&G 2357 Electrotechnical Diploma in Electrical Installation

The Electrical Installation Apprenticeship: City & Guilds 2357 Level 3 Diploma in Electrotechnical Technology

Candidates who enrol on our apprenticeship will study either on block release (two weeks, five times per year) or on day release (1 day each week for 36 weeks). The average length of the apprenticeship lasts for 42 months, although previous qualifications that candidates may have obtained could reduce this significantly. Training will encompass the completion of knowledge units delivered by our dedicated team of tutors, functional skills in English, Maths and ICT dependant on GCSE results of candidates and performance units on site with employers assessed by our team of training officers. Finally towards the end of the apprenticeship candidates will be entered into the industry’s own practical performance assessment, the AM2 test.
