New electrical workshop offering NVQ Level 3 Requirements for Electrical Installations

The Maritime & Engineering College North West in Birkenhead has set up an electrical training workshop to improve electrical engineers prospects within the local community. They have set up an NVQ level 3 training course and are hoping to attract electrical specialist candidates within the heavy industry. They want to offer a more suitable course, focusing less on commercial/domestic areas.

The course is accredited by City & Guilds and for more information, contact the college directly via

Apprenticeships – NVQ Courses

Our website is dedicated to NVQ courses, but it’s worth mentioning a little about apprenticeships as a whole.



These are designed to help you succeed in a career by actually working and are usually for jobs which require a hands on approach. It wouldn’t make sense to become a plumber by only studying, because the job is so practical.apprenticeships nvq courses

As with all apprenticeships, you would need to study alongside working, which can be a challenge for some, but at least you will have a salary at the end of the month.

You will be trained by professionals with a structure programme, ensuring you are progressing well.

The requirements for an apprenticeship is as follows:

– you must be over 16

– you must be numerate

– you cannot be in full time education

– you must be a UK resident


Types of apprenticeships

Intermediate Apprenticeships (equivalent to five GCSEs or NVQ Level 2 courses)
Advanced Level Apprenticeships (equivalent to two A levels)
Higher Apprenticeships (leading to NVQ Level 4 qualifications)
