MEET OUR LEARNERS
Joseph has done a Level 3 Apprenticeship in Electrical Installation. Joseph said:
"I particularly enjoyed studying at Yorkshire Coast College as the teaching was of a high standard and there was always somebody on hand if there was anything you were unsure of. I chose to study Electrical Installation as I wanted to do something hands on and enjoy the practical side of learning. I got an Apprenticeship with a local Electrician and I am currently going in to my fourth year of working with them. I have passed on some of my skills to a new apprentice, helping him where I can to understand and contribute to all kinds of electrical work".
