As National Apprenticeship Week begins, JTL, a leading apprenticeship provider in the building services engineering industry across England and Wales, is proud to celebrate the occasion by unveiling inspiring ‘A Day in the Life’ videos featuring two newly qualified electricians, Ben Gillin and Demi Whitehead.

Ben Gillin, a newly qualified electrician currently working at Lloyd Morris Electrical in Wrexham, recently secured the remarkable achievement of reaching the finals of SkillELECTRIC UK, where he secured an impressive second place. Ben’s video offers viewers a preview into his daily routine, providing insights into key tasks such as fitting control panels and wiring panel doors, showcasing the skills that earned him recognition in the competition.

Demi Whitehead, another newly qualified electrician, embarked on her trade career at William Davis Homes in Derbyshire following the completion of her electrotechnical apprenticeship with JTL. Demonstrating her dedication and skill, Demi was also one of the eight UK-based apprentices to reach the finals of World Skills SkillELECTRIC UK. Her ‘A Day in the Life’ video captures the electrical jobs she skilfully completes on her employer’s new housing developments, highlighting her success in the industry.

In addition to these insightful videos, JTL is thrilled to announce the opening of its 13th training centre in Eastbourne, furthering its commitment to providing high-quality apprenticeships.
