Stefan Edwards

Level 3 - Diploma in Electrical Installations (Apprenticeship)



Swindon College was the only college in the area that had the facilities to do the practical exercises which Stefan liked as he prefers to be hands-on.  He found that a course he’d started at another college was too classroom based so changed and came to Swindon College. 

The tutors and facilities here are great, beyond my expectations.  My tutor is clear and understandable and the course is set up well.

Stefan recently took part in the competition ‘Sparks UK Electrical Apprentice of the Year 2018’ in which he had to complete 3 tasks in 5 hours.  He had to wire a ring main into an earth, wire up a conduit system with 2-way light switch in singles and wire a radial power circuit in 2.5 singles.  Although slightly nervous to start with, Stefan managed to complete all the tasks. 

He didn't win but found it to be valuable experience which he will carry forward into his end of year exams which include an inspection and testing exam.

The course fits around my work and my employers are supporting me with my studies.  The workload is manageable around my other activities.  I would recommend anyone looking for a course that involves practical experience to come to Swindon College.
