How to get started


Find an employer

The first step is to find an electrician who will take you on as an apprentice, be your employer, and offer you a job. You’ll need to find an employer before you start your apprenticeship – there are some tips for you earlier in this guide.


Choose a training provider

In the meantime, have a look around for a training provider that suits you. This is where you’ll do your off-job learning. You’ll need to let your Skills Account Manager know which provider you want to go with when you sign up.


Sign up

Once you and your employer are ready to get started, you should give us a call on 0508 SKILLS (754 557). There’s a couple of forms you’ll need to fill out together, so we’ll send these to you. Once we’ve received and processed your documents, a Skills Account Manager will get in touch with you or your employer. They’ll run through an induction so you can kick off your training on the right foot.
