Statistics on traders and how to get started with Electrician courses!


These are very strange times, many trades people across the country have been back to providing their services for some time now, we are also back teaching Electrician courses. With millions of people still remaining at home due to the pandemic there are a lot of people looking to improve their homes in one way or another creating plenty of work for traders. This is hugely beneficial, as the restoration of confidence has been pivotal for the recovery of consumers and tradesmen and women. According to recent data, 16% of tradespeople agree that the threat of a second wave of COVID has influenced them to commence work on home improvements sooner rather than later. Meaning currently around 18% of electrician across the country are working 10 or more hours every day!


The role of an electrician isn't always this chaotic, the whole industry is still in catch up mode and projects delayed by the lockdown are taking priority. The role of an Electrician can be fantastic career for many with the advantage of being able to set-up your own business and work on a self-employed basis. However, in light of the amount of work, great earnings and advantages of this role there has been a skills shortage in the world of electrics for many years. If you have ever thought about becoming a professional electrician, there has never been a better time to make a change of direction, learn new skills and take on new challenges!

However, if you would prefer to start learning as soon as possible then you always have the choice to take on our 'Home-Study option' our Home-Study Level 2 Electrical course is a great alternative method of achieving this qualification. This option starts, as the name suggests, at home. We will send you our 'Home-Study Pack' which includes all of the relevant theory as well as test questions.
