Electrical Lecturer

The most rewarding part of my job is seeing students of all ages make that start with us and then go on to find a role that suits them. We set students on the path to apprenticeships, further study, full-time employment, or simply to feel more confident around their electrical equipment at home. Each year, our students typically range in age from 16 to 50 years across both day and evening courses. No matter what your stage in life or future ambition our electrical courses provide the launchpad for your electric future.
