This one-year, full time course is ideal for those wanting to take the first steps towards becoming an electrician. You will spend your time equally between the workshops and the classroom, learning both the practical side of electrical installation whilst also studying the technical content of the course.

There are no pre-requisites to joining this course; however, a moderate understanding of maths and basic science will be necessary. This programme of study is for one year and upon completion, you will be awarded a full Level 2 qualification in electrical installation. From here you will be eligible to find work as an electrician's assistant/mate or progress on to the Level 3 qualification.

Course Content

This Diploma covers health and safety, electrical installation theory and technology, electrical installation methods, procedures and requirements, and electrical installation craft skills, as well as electrical science and principles.

Throughout the qualification, you will have the opportunity to utilise the IET On-Site Guide and also be introduced to how regulations, including BS 7671, affect electrical installation. The qualification covers standard circuits as described in the On-Site Guide.

If you have not already achieved a grade C/4 or above in Maths when joining the course and wish to progress onto the EAL Level 3 Diploma the following year, then you will need to successfully achieve a grade C/4 or higher with your GCSE resit.


This course offers:

  • access to the best workshops in the East Midlands
  • expert, professional teaching staff
  • high-quality training programmes
  • opportunities for work placements, along with close working relationships with JTL and the AEMT

Entry Requirements

  • Four GCSEs at grade D/3 or above, including Maths and English language.

Progression Opportunities

Upon completion of the Level 2 Diploma, students will be eligible for the EAL Level 3 Diploma in Electrical Installation, so long as they have also achieved a grade C/4 or above in Maths.
