Immigration rules could spur people on to take electrical courses

Electrical courses could see a spike in demand if new immigration rules prevent skilled foreign workers from entering the country.

Mark Swift, media relations manager at EEF - the manufacturers' organisation, highlighted how businesses will often need high-level skills and they must have access to qualified people if they need them.

If immigration rules are tightened, it could offer opportunities for people in Britain to take electrical courses and find employment, although Mr Swift stressed that not enough details have been released to know the exact impact on the country.

"Our response would be that it does have to be done in consultation with business so that it does allow for the right amount of flexibility," he explained.

These comments were made following a statement by home secretary Theresa May, which indicated that net migration will be scaled back to a similar level to that of the 1990s.

It was revealed that a limit on immigration is set to be one of the strategies pursued to achieve this.
