The training was extremely informative

The training was extremely informative and useful. I found the tutor to be very engaging and enthusiastic and was very helpful throughout the course and would highly recommend tradesskill4u to anyone who wants to become a competent electrician.

Inspiring, Hands-On Work

A-levels in sixth form was never what I was interested in, and I was always preferred hands on and practical work that makes me think. I feel like sitting in a classroom, I'd be uninspired whereas here I feel like I'm active and gaining experience.

So Supportive

My apprenticeship was great. I trained while I worked, got some experience under my belt, and earned a wage at the same time. The best part is the Tutors are happy to support you and will always answer any questions.
