SkillELECTRIC 2024 is now open for entries

Talented electrotechnical students are being encouraged to register for this year’s SkillELECTRIC competition. The application window is now open and runs until 28 March 2024. 


The event is part of the WorldSkills UK competition network and is designed to promote and showcase high standards and skills across the electrotechnical industry. During the competition, entrants will be judged on a series of challenging tests in a bid to be named the 2024 SkillELECTRIC champion. All those who register will take part in an online, interactive app-based task which tests skills around health and safety, inspection and testing, regulations, electrical principles and installation practices and procedures.


The top-scoring competitors from this stage will be invited to complete a challenging practical task at a national qualifying heat around the UK between May and June. Those who score the highest at the live heats will progress to the UK grand final in November, and they may also have the chance to represent the UK in the Electrical Installation event at WorldSkills Shanghai in 2026.


The event is organised by the industry charity National Electrotechnical Training (NET) and has the Electric Center, NICEIC and Scolmore Group as its delivery partners. 


“If you’ve got a shining star in your company or classroom, why not enter them into SkillELECTRIC,” says Jennie Phung, SkillELECTRIC Project Manager at NET. 


“The competition process brings so many skills back into the business, such as working efficiently under pressure, time management, precision and confidence. It also contributes to an apprentice’s 20% off-the-job training requirement, which is a great benefit.”
