Next steps

Before you start this course, you will need to purchase safety boots with steel toe caps and a hi-vis vest as these are required when working in College workshops. Successful completion of a Level 1 course can lead onto Level 2 and 3 courses. Your course may include work experience or a work placement that could lead to the offer of a part-time or casual work, or you might work outside of your studies. A plumber/electrician has the potential to earn anywhere between £12K and £40 per year. Career opportunities are available through large contractors and smaller specialist employers in the public and private sectors. You could also train to become your own boss and become self-employed. Our students benefit from local site visits and trips to construction companies, such as our award-winning local partner Priestley Construction. Our Careers Guidance Team can assist you with choosing the right course and thinking about where this might take you in the future.
