Michael

I enjoy the practical side of the Electrical Installation. We’ve made cages for cables from metal trunking, which we had to cut and bend into shape. We also have to wire up a board; we’re given a photo to copy and have to take the measurements and wire it up to standard.

In the theory lessons we look at preparation for work sites – from the stages of jobs, to site plans and schematics – ready for use in the future.

My tutors are brilliant and good fun to be around. It’s everyone’s choice to be here so we all get the work done.  We’ve had speakers come in from local companies to talk to us about how to write a good CV and work experience opportunities.

I want to stay on and complete Level 2. I’m currently employed by Center Parcs as a Lifeguard so I plan to look at electrical opportunities within the company, such as electric maintenance or a service technician apprenticeship.
