A career as an Electrician is ideal for someone who is physically fit and doesn’t mind working in small spaces
The job prospects are fantastic for someone with the right qualifications and you could easily earn up to £38,000* once you have complete your training. But, if you like the idea of being out and about, going from site to site and getting stuck into the day’s work then being an Electrician is a perfect choice. Because of the inherent safety issues involved with electrical installations it is tightly regulated by the Government and has a strict set of qualifications that you must achieve in order to work as an Electrician. As a result of this, it can be complicated to become a qualified Electrician, but that’s why they are in such high demand and short supply, this is why they’re among the most well-paid of all construction trades

The Lincolnshire Regional College’s Learner of the Year Award 2015 was presented to Electrical Installation learner, Cooper Ridal, 17, a former Pupil at John Spendluffe School. Cooper said
“I wanted to come to LRC because I live in Alford and it’s close. I love learning new things as we go along and the practical side of the course. I’m now going up to Level 2 and I want to be an Electrician when I finish.
“The Tutors at LRC are really nice and the other learners are amazing, they’re all down to earth and easy to make friends with. Everyone knows everyone and it’s such a nice atmosphere, I really love it!”Cooper Riddall
