If a proposed QS needs to get their skills and experience recognised to the industry Level 3 benchmark, the Electrotechnical Experienced Worker Assessment can help.
The Assessment recognises occupational competence for individuals who have not completed an apprenticeship or achieved an equivalent Level 3 vocational qualification. To qualify for this route contractors must have been working as an electrician for a considerable period (typically over five years).
It replaces the JIB Mature Candidate Assessment and provides an improved, standardised, and transparent process for experienced workers to accredit their skills. It has been developed via an industry group comprising ECA, JIB, NET, Unite, Certsure, ECS, NAPIT, City and Guilds and EAL.
The new Experienced Worker Assessment is based on the same content as the electrotechnical apprenticeship, meaning both new entrants and existing workers are now being assessed and accredited against the same industry standard.
Available now, the new assessment is accessible across England, Wales, and Northern Ireland.
