In this episode, we discuss the ‘right’ routes into the industry, with insight on avoiding those dodgy online companies that – for a nominal fee – will claim to have you fully qualified and raring to go in a matter of weeks. Unfortunately, that just isn’t the case, and these companies are more than happy to take your money, in exchange for a “qualification” that isn’t worth the paper it’s written on.
Here at Electrical Review, we aren’t big on scamming the young people we need to sustain our future, so we explore the humble apprenticeship, the unsung hero of the electrical industry.
We’re also joined by a special guest, this year’s winner of the Screwfix Trade Apprentice Competition, 21-year-old Kaiden Ashun, who, from his work van no less, will be filling us in on what his apprenticeship involved why he’d recommend them to others and what it was like to bring home the gold – quite literally, he won £10,000 worth of stuff.
