This Modern Apprenticeship framework develops the skills and knowledge employees need to work in electrical installation. It’s aimed at those who have little or no experience in the sector. After completion, they could work in roles such as an electrician, project manager or electronic engineer.
Your employee will study for a Modern Apprenticeship at SCQF Level 7. Their qualification will include:
SVQ in Electrical Installation at SCQF Level 7
Candidates don’t need any previous experience at this level.
