Installation/Maintenance Electrician — Level 3 Apprenticeship Standard

Course information

Installation and maintenance Electricians are required to safely install, maintain and repair electrical systems in industrial, commercial and domestic environments. This apprenticeship standard consists of occupational pathways that are determined by the employer.
Pathway 1 - Installation Electrician will install, test and understand electrotechnical equipment and systems in buildings, structures and the environment.
Pathway 2 - Maintenance Electrician will maintain electrical and electronic installations including the use of automated production systems. At the end of the apprenticeship students will be equipped with the techniques and skills needed for an electrician as well as skills in health and safety, communication, team work and equality and diversity.

The National Minimum Wage for an Apprentice is £3.90 per hour - however most employers tend to pay significantly above this rate. As skills develop many employers tend to increase wages.
The hourly rate is paid for time working in the workplace and training both on and off the job including College time.
Apprentices aged 19 years or over who have already spent a year on an apprenticeship must be paid for at least the full National Minimum Wage appropriate to their age:
18-20 years £6.15 per hour
21-24 years £7.70 per hour
25 and over £8.21 per hour
Holidays will be agreed with the employer. The minimum entitlement is 20 days per year plus Bank Holidays.
