The scheme is free to join for all students and apprentices currently undertaking full or part time courses within the electrotechnical industry. All those who join will be able to access the latest advice and support which will complement their current training and development.

“It complements the work we have done in the past with our Apprentice of the Year competition and Jobs for the Girls campaign and further demonstrates our commitment to helping those who will help shape the future of the electrical industry.”
