Trainee spark blogs about her training

The Bristol based youngster recently started an 8-week training programme with DCET Bristol Training in partnership with Jeff Way Electrical Services, which will precede an apprenticeship. She is hoping to go on and forge a career as an electrician and is charting her progress through a new blog.

‘I completed my level 2 and level 3 training at college a few years ago but was never sure what I wanted to do with the rest of my life,’ said Ruby. ‘After a few years doing different things I decided I wanted to crack on with becoming an electrician and was over the moon when this opportunity came up.’

Ruby is being supported along her way by NICEIC, the regulatory body for the electrical contracting industry. She contacted NICEIC after being made aware of its Jobs for the Girls campaign which actively encourages women to become electricians and explore the opportunities that exist within the industry.

‘Finding the right support to get the necessary qualifications and training is still a massive barrier for many women,’ commented NICEIC CEO Emma Clancy. ‘We wanted to put in place a mechanism to help them overcome this hurdle and we are delighted to be supporting Ruby as she takes her first steps in the industry.’
