So I will be starting my first apprenticeship soon to become a fully qualified electrician in approximately 4 years (according to my Employer and the apprenticeship provider) Wanted to introduce myself as a complete newbie in hopes of some enlightenment from more experienced professionals that circulate this forum. My apprenticeship will be with a Fire and Security company and the qualifications i will gain will be at an advanced level 3 diploma from City & Guilds, the company is following the JIB standards and works with a well known Apprenticeship provider to do this. From my currently very limited knowledge of all this i am very excited to get underway and start my apprenticeship this summer. From what I've read the JIB apprentice salary guidelines are better than the standard apprentice wages around the UK, is this correct? I will be posting more on here hopefully and I'd like to contribute to the community as much as possible and I wish the best of luck to everyone out there in this field. Thanks!
