(PRWEB UK) 7 June 2013
The article, New Qualifications for Aspiring Plumbers and Electricians, published 4th June in HVP, reveals that the two new Level 1 qualifications in the Qualifications and Credit Framework are set to begin 2nd September 2013. Aimed at those considering a career in the industry, the courses give students of all ages the chance to try a variety of tasks. Those interested do not need any prior experience in the trade, just a willingness to learn. Level 1 Diploma in Plumbing Studies and Level 1 Diploma in Electrical Installation come following an increase in enquiries from people without the necessary entry level requirements for City and Guilds level 2 and 3 plumbing and electrical qualifications.
Portfolio Manager for City and Guilds, Chris Bailey, explains that “This allows them an entry point into the plumbing or electro-technical industry and gives them the opportunity to progress onwards and upwards in their chosen career.”
Best loved for their London emergency plumbers, the team at Emergency Plumber take a keen interest in all aspects of the industry, particularly in new talent emerging. As such, the news was of great interest and a representative from the agency reflects on what this could mean for the future of plumbing.
“These two new qualifications are ideal for those who like the idea of a career in this sector but perhaps have no or very limited experience in the area and so are reluctant to commit to longer and more in depth courses. As well as young people we would expect this course to attract older people as well who might be considering a career change. We’re interested to see the impact this has on the numbers of people working as plumbing and electricians.”
