Level 3 Trades Academy Electrical

03TAEL
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr S. Perks

Students will spend 3 days a week at the ETCO (Electrical Training Organisation) base in Mount Wellington studying how to become an Electrician. 

The two days in school will be spent studying Financial Literacy, PE and revision time with a Physics teacher to ensure there is a thorough understanding of the 3 days with ETCO. 

You will work towards 120 Level 3 credits at ETCO and other credits in school which are aimed at making you the best Electrical apprentice and possible future University candidate.

Successful completion can lead to an Electrical apprenticeship.


Recommended Prior Learning

NCEA Level 1, including 10 Maths, 10 English and 12 Science is preferred followed by an interview with the HoLA Technology/Trades Academy.
