An Apprenticeship is a national work based training programme designed for individual industries. Apprenticeships are a great way of earning and learning at the same time.
The Apprenticeship scheme is divided into two levels – Apprenticeship and Advanced Apprenticeship. The level of Apprenticeship you undertake will depend on previous experience, ability and the job role you’re working in
An Apprenticeship can lead on to an Advanced Apprenticeship should you want to progress your career development further. People completing Apprenticeships and Advanced Apprenticeships with Highbury have gone on to study higher qualifications such as degrees, been promoted in their company to roles with more responsibility and within a short period of time some have gone on to become managers and even company directors.
You will be studying towards an NVQ Level 3 in Electrotechnical Services. The course provides the basic knowledge and understanding of Electrotechnical Services practice, which will enable the Apprentice to become a qualified Electrician.
This will include:
Electricity, the environment and community
The process of installation

Installation circuits
Materials commonly used
Tools, equipment and working practices
Measurement and Marking out
Installation Procedures
Testing and Inspection of Installations

A Training Advisor will work with you and your employer to review your progress throughout the Apprenticeship.
Progress reports will be give to your employer by your tutors.
Electrical Installation Apprentices will attend Highbury Northarbour Centre 1 day per week to undertake the College based section of the training. The rest of the time will be spent learning on the job with the employer. Apprentices will build a portfolio of work and have on-site visits to observe their ability and skills in their daily role.

How long will the Apprenticeship take?
This depends on your motivation and the support of your employer. The Advanced Apprenticeship takes approximately 3-4 years to complete.
Your full commitment to the Apprenticeship is essential. It is important you take ownership for your own learning by seeking out opportunities to gain new skills on the job with your employer. Tutors are on hand to guide and support you with your training and attendance at College sessions are essential.
