I studied on both the Level 2 and 3 courses in Electrical Installation, which provided me with the theoretical and practical skills required to find employment as an electrician. I now work as an Apprentice Electrician for JC Electrical, where the skills I gained are used on a daily basis. It's a varied and interesting job, and I'm really looking forward to progressing further in the industry.
I was fortunate enough to complete an apprenticeship with a local, medium sized company then left to work for anotherr firm to gain more experience. I then made the decision to become self-employed, running my own company for 5 years before joining the College in 2013. I am continually learning new skills that enable me to pass on my experience and knowledge more effectively. For me, the most satisfying part of the job is teaching skills that can influence a person's life for the better and laying the important foundations for their future.
