Course: Electrical Installation Level 2
Electrical Installation L2
Great Yarmouth Campus
FT / PT
This course is for anyone who wants to work as an electrician in the building services engineering sector. This qualification does not make candidates fully qualified electricians – it allows candidates to learn, develop and practice the skills required for employment and/ or career progression in the electrotechnology sector.
Following your initial assessment, an individual learning plan is created, which will highlight your strengths and details any areas of need.
The course is broken down into units focusing on specific areas which are then assessed. This will allow us to check your progress before the next module begins. Don’t worry! Each unit is carefully programmed and delivered to ensure you receive training appropriate for you.
During the course you will receive practical and theory lessons. In practical lessons you will work through a series of tasks or projects to develop your hands-on skills. All of the tasks that you produce are set by the awarding body (City and Guilds at LC & EAL at GY) to demonstrate and verify your practical skills.
The theory sessions provide you with the underpinning knowledge of the construction industry needed to apply your skills on site.
You will study a range of units including:
- Health and safety in building services engineering
- Principles of electrical science
- Electrical installations technology
- Installation of wiring systems and enclosures
- Understand how to communicate with others within building services engineering.
All programmes include visits, guest speakers, training opportunities and work experience as standard.
Our construction department takes part in the annual Norfolk and Waveney Building Apprentices’ competition and Skillbuild regional competitions which test the skills and determination of students and apprentices.
You will need to hold a GCSE in maths and English at grade 4 or above. Your entry level will be assessed based on any previous experience you may have, initial aptitude test results and from discussing your goals and aspirations. No matter what level you start at each course prepares you for the next to allow you to progress and maximise your potential.
Assignments are practical and written and cover the skills and knowledge in the above units – there are various practical tasks to be completed within the practical workbook and each unit will have online, on-demand testing using multiple choice questions (e-assessment) and there will be short answer written papers.
After completing this course you may progress on to an Apprenticeship or onto a Level 3 Diploma in Electrical Installation. Former students have gone on to work within the industry or have even set up their own businesses. Many are now helping to train the workforce of the future as they have also taken on apprentices of their own.
