Engineering – Electrical Installation
Tom was crowned student of the year in Electrical Engineering two years running for his outstanding work at both Level 2 and Level 3. Having been taught at home up to the age of 16, Tom arrived at College without any recognised qualifications but is now looking to progress to University to study Electrical Engineering.
Tom explains, "The facilities at College are great, they’re really hands on so provide useful practical experience. The new suite of fault finding boards simulate errors which an electrical engineer may very well expect to find out on a job so in essence they prepare us for actual work in the industry. It’s all very well being told what faults can occur and why, but until you actually see the fault occur you might not know what the tell-tale signs are.
