From one of our recently qualified apprentices:
“I wanted to get into an electrical trade because I enjoy a challenge and like to learn new things every day. I do something new every day such as putting up cable containment and wiring smaller circuits like fire alarms and security or pulling in heavy duty cables and working on switchgear.
Every day is different and things are constantly fresh. There is always something new to learn or a new way to do it. I enjoy being able to look back at my day’s work and take pride in what I have done. I get a great sense of achievement.
The training I received from both the company and JTL was simply faultless and it enabled me to get the most out of my apprenticeship. I’ve grown a lot of self confidence as a result. I was encouraged to ask questions and not to be afraid of making mistakes as it’s all part of learning and becoming better.
I would like to move into designing a job to a client’s specification and learn about estimating materials and labour costs I can look ahead to my future with great excitement.”
