“First of all, I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has been involved, this funding has turned something that seemed out of reach into a reality.
So far, I have passed the first part of the qualification which is a four-week course in which I learnt about wiring, testing and regulations through a series of practice classroom sessions, online teaching and self-taught modules. By completing this first part I have achieved two Level 3 City & Guild awards.
Before the course started, I was a bit apprehensive at the prospect of entering back into full time education, but the course was very well put together, organised and well delivered. Having completed this first part of the course I feel much more confident at work and as a result have been given more responsibility. This has ultimately led to my role within the company being more valuable and that has given me more job security.
I will be attending stages two and three in November and finish in May 2022. This will again be a steep learning curve as there is a lot of new information to learn, but after having such a good experience in the first part I am confident and excited to get going, and to see where the new qualifications will lead me.”
