Talented electrotechnical apprentices are being encouraged to register for this year’s SkillELECTRIC competition, which is open to entries until 2 April 2020.
During the competition, entrants will be judged on a series of challenging practical tests in a bid to be named the 2020 SkillELECTRIC champion.
The event, which is organised by National Electrotechnical Training (NET) and is part of the WorldSkills UK competition network, is designed to promote and showcase high standards and skills across the electrotechnical industry.
Between April and June, there will be a number of regional events across the UK. Those who score most highly will progress to a UK final held in November at the prestigious WorldSkills UK LIVE, the UK’s largest skills and careers event with over 80,000 visitors.
Candidates may also have the chance to represent their country and compete internationally at future WorldSkills competitions.
SkillELECTRIC is supported by a number of industry bodies including Scolmore Group, Edmundson Electrical, ESP, CPN-Cudis, Dickies Workwear and Di-LOG.
“Having a SkillELECTRIC competitor can help boost business performance as it teaches competitors to work efficiently under pressure and improves areas such as time management and precision,” said Jennie Phung, SkillELECTRIC project manager. “If you’ve got a shining star in your company we encourage you to work with your training provider to enter them into SkillELECTRIC.”
Entries can be made via WorldSkills UK.
