What it means for colleges

Working with colleges to support the next generation of electricians

As the leading names in the industry, NICEIC has a responsibility to work with, encourage and promote apprenticeships in the electrical industry.
Working with colleges, we want to recognise the talent of electrical students and apprentices and acknowledge all the good work they do. Together, we want to show the next generation what a rewarding and diverse career they can have within the electrical sector.

What's in it for me?

If your electrical student takes part in the competition, following your nomination, you will automatically be entered into a prize draw for a chance to win a Technical Publication Bundles which includes:
  • NICEIC Site Guide             
  • NICIEC Inspection Testing and Certification           
  • NICEIC Snags & Solutions Bundle
Every college that enters 20 or more students into the competition will also qualify for a College Pack and will receive 25 Double Sockets, 25 Switches, 25 6" Pendants and 25 Batten Holders – all provided by our partners The Scolmore Group.
The College that produces the Electrical Apprentice of the Year will also receive £1,000 worth of Scolmore products.
