NICEIC is partnering with National Electrotechnical Training (NET) and WorldSkills UK to deliver SkillELECTRIC 2022.
Designed to promote and celebrate the talent of electrotechnical students across the UK, the competition will see entrants engage in knowledge and practical based heats as they compete to reach the final, where the SkillELECTRIC 2022 winner will be crowned. And that’s not all; the winner could also be in the running to represent the UK on the international stage at WorldSkills Lyon 2024.
NICEIC’s Technical Training Developer, and SkillELECTRIC judge, Alex Robinson, said:
“Having mentored several students through the process in previous years, I have witnessed first-hand how this competition can help a learner develop both technically and on a personal level.
“SkillELECTRIC provides competitors with experiences and opportunities they would not ordinarily have, and it is amazing to see how a young persons’ career and future can be enhanced by getting involved.
“Electrotechnical students are the future lifeblood of our industry. NICEIC recognises this and is committed to supporting them every step of the way. So, if you are part of a NICEIC business that employs an apprentice, please encourage them to get involved.”
Jennie Phung, NET‘s Project Manager for SkillELECTRIC commented on the partnership with NICEIC:
“We are delighted to welcome NICEIC as a SkillELECTRIC 2022 sponsor. Having the UK’s leading electrical certification provider on board is not only a great indication of how prestigious the competition has become, it is also fantastic for the contestants who will benefit directly from interacting with Alex and the NICEIC brand.”
Open to all electrotechnical apprentices, students who are working towards their Level 3 technical qualification, or those who have accomplished Level 3 standard in the past year, the registration window is open now and will run until April 1, 2022.
