As most people do, you may want to consider doing our Level 2 & 3 City & Guilds 2365 combined together on 1 continuous course.

Why take the 2365 Level 2 Course?

Put simply, to get a job with a contractor as an electrician's mate. By funding your initial training yourself you can make yourself much more attractive to employers by gaining the relevant skills and experience that they are looking for. This Level 2 course is 10 weeks long (over a 20 week period) and covers all the foundation knowledge and practical skills that will mean you won’t simply be making tea if you start in a new job or apprenticeship. You will actually be able to get to work straight away under the supervision of a qualified sparky.

This will allow you to then complete further training, on the Level 3 Diploma Qualification and then onto your NVQ and AM2 at a later stage, if you so choose.
