Northampton Collect electrical testing booth
Congratulations go to our apprentice, Regan, for successfully completing his electrical practical exam at college. 
 
The Northampton College electrical test booth assesses a wide variety of skills that are essential for his day-to-day work. 
 
 

An electrical apprenticeship – what’s it all about? 

According to The Electrotechnical and Skills Partnership (TESP) the UK will need 15,000 newly qualified electricians over the next five years. Professional electricians will play an important part in the country’s shift to a low carbon economy. 
 
To become an electrical apprentice, you first need a job in the electrical industry which involves a suitable range of work. This allows you to develop your knowledge and skills while you work with a supervisor. There isn’t an age limit, and it’s never too late to learn. 
 
During your apprenticeship you’ll learn what you need to know as a professional installation and maintenance electrician. At MSE you’ll gain experience of domestic, commercial and industrial installations. As an apprentice you’re a paid member of the team and your training is funded. 
 
An apprenticeship training programme usually takes around four years to complete. You receive training at college and in the workplace. 
 
Please get in touch if you would like to know more about joining MSE as an apprentice.
