Level 1 City & Guilds Diploma in Electrical Installation
You’ll need 4 GCSEs at grades 3–1 (D–G), including English Language and Maths at grades 3 (D) or above. With this you will be asked to undertake an initial assessment and this must show that you are ready to study English and maths at Level 2. If your results are lower than this, don't worry, we'll find the right course for you.
You will be assessed by a series of written and practical assessments.
You could progress to further study at Nottingham College onto a Electrical Level 2 programme as long as you successfully complete the Level 1 course, achieve English Language and Maths at grade 4 (C) and pass a skills test.
Alternatively you could progress to an Electrical Apprenticeship so you can further develop your knowledge and skills within a real industry setting.
