Entry requirements for our courses depend on the specific requirements of each Programme of Study and an individual's previous experience, which will
all be discussed during the interview process.
The following list offers a guide as to what you might be expected to achieve to gain entry on to a particular level of a course.
Progressing to each level of study
Once you successfully completed your course you may be able to progress to the next level, following a satisfactory interview with a Tutor. If you’ve finished your Level 3 course
you will be offered advice and guidance from our Career Advisers on how to apply for a place at University through UCAS, or how to apply for a job or an Apprenticeship.
Entry Level, Level 1 and Level 2 courses generally last one year; Level 3 courses will usually last for two years.
Success is not final, failure is not fatal Winston Churchill
A career as an Electrician is ideal for someone who is physically fit and doesn’t mind working in small spaces
The job prospects are fantastic for someone with the right qualifications and you could easily earn up to £38,000* once you have complete your
training. But, if you like the idea of being out and about, going from site to site and getting stuck into the day’s work then being an Electrician is a perfect choice. Because of the inherent safety issues involved with electrical installations it is tightly regulated by the Government and has a strict set of qualifications that you must achieve in order to work as an Electrician.
As a result of this, it can be complicated to become a qualified Electrician, but that’s why they are in such high demand and short supply, this is why they’re among the most well-paid of all construction trades
Electrical Installation is concerned with the electrical circuits and wiring systems for houses and other buildings.
You will also learn about how electrical systems work in machines, as well as wiring electrical equipment and circuits, assembling electrical cable enclosures and wiring and testing electrical panels. Learners will be able to take part in work experience as part of their course.
After successful completion of the Level 3 Diploma in Electrical Installation you could choose to enter straight into employment or progress on to Higher Education.
If you are considering going to university after you have completed a Level 3 qualification you could choose to study at university in a wide choice of areas such as the HNC in Electrical and Electronic Engineering or you may choose to study for a Refrigeration & Air Conditioning at degree level.
The Lincolnshire Regional College’s Learner of the Year Award 2015 was presented to Electrical Installation learner, Cooper Ridal, 17, a former Pupil at John Spendluffe School. Cooper said
“I wanted to come to LRC because I live in Alford and it’s close. I love learning new things as we go along and the practical side of the course. I’m now going up to Level 2 and I want to be an Electrician when I finish.
“The Tutors at LRC are really nice and the other learners are amazing, they’re all down to earth and easy to make friends with. Everyone knows everyone and it’s such a nice atmosphere, I really love it!”
