Domestic Electrician Apprenticeship


Course overview

The Domestic Electrician Apprenticeship Standard now means that we have a clear identity and industry standard for domestic electrical work, which has been developed by electrical contracting employers who recruit apprentices and work in residential premises.

Over three years, the apprenticeship standard provides a comprehensive Level 3 training programme that covers all parts of planning, installing, testing, and maintaining electrical services within a domestic setting.

It also includes training and assessment in domestic EV charging point installation and will provide a strong platform of foundation skills to equip learners to undertake further training in the installation of new and low carbon technologies.

Domestic Electrician apprentices will gain a new Level 3 Electrotechnical in Dwellings technical qualification and will have to carry out an in-depth, End Point Assessment that is a modified version of the existing industry assessment of competence, the AM2.

You can find out all of the latest key course information by visiting the Institute for Apprenticeships website.

Course Length


This course length is 3 years. If you already have some qualifications in electrical engineering, the length of the course may be shorter.

Currently we are looking to deliver this course in Birmingham from January 2023 however we would like to offer this course in more locations across the country.

Entry Requirements


You will need to achieve Level 2 Functional Skills in English and maths, if you don’t already have these qualifications or equivalent GCSEs.

Equivalent GCSEs are grade C or higher or grade 4 or higher). If you are not quite at this level, you will have the opportunity to work towards these qualifications as part of your apprenticeship.

In addition. you will need to be aged 16 and over for your employer to benefit from support funding.  If you’re older than 19, your employer may need to put some of their own money towards your studies.

You will need to have been a UK resident for the previous three years, or a national of any European Union (EU) country or European Economic Area (EEA) for the previous three years. This is unless you have an immigration status which exempts you from the three-year residency requirement. Contact JTL for more information about this.

You can apply for an apprenticeship while you’re still in education, but you need to have left before you can start with us. As a rule of thumb, you must have left compulsory education after the last Friday in June of the academic year in which you are applying.

You will need an employer before you can start an apprenticeship, although you can apply before you’ve arranged one.

If you are colour-blind then you will be unable to apply for an electrical apprenticeship due to health and safety reasons.  

How much does it cost?


The full training cost for the Domestic Electrician  Apprenticeship is £15,000. 

For employers there is no cost for hiring an apprentice aged 16 to 18 years, or somebody over 18 with an Education Health and Care Plan or who has previously been in care.
