  • Course Type: T Level

What can this course lead to?

Upon successful completion of the T Level Building Services Engineering – Electrical Installation program, you will be well-equipped for a variety of career paths, including:

  • Electrician: Pursue a career as a certified electrician, working in various settings such as residential, commercial, or industrial.
  • Building Services Engineer: Specialise in electrical systems within the broader field of building services engineering.
  • Sustainability Consultant: Advice on energy-efficient electrical solutions and green technologies.
  • Electrical Inspector: Ensure compliance with electrical codes and regulations in construction projects.
  • Further Education: Choose to pursue higher education or specialised training in electrical engineering or related fields.

Who is it for?

The T Level Building Services Engineering – Electrical Installation program at Inspire Education Group is designed to provide students with comprehensive knowledge and practical skills essential for a successful career in electrical installation within the building services engineering sector.

This two-year course focuses on electrical systems, wiring, and their integration into modern building infrastructure. T Levels aim to provide the knowledge and experience needed to open the door to highly skilled employment, higher level study or a Higher Apprenticeship. The course is delivered through workshop-based practical sessions, class-based theoretical delivery and work experience placements in your second year.

This qualification will help you gain an understanding of Electrotechnical Engineering within the Building Services industry sector.

You’ll have access to guest speakers and industry experts, site visits, relevant field trips and industry placements on live sites out in the world of work. There is also an employer-set project, which you will complete as part of a team.

If you are not quite ready for a T level, then a foundation programme could give you the chance to improve your maths and English (and any other subjects that you need to improve) to move on to a T level the following year.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

4 GCSEs at grades 4/C or above including Engish and Maths (or Functional Skills at Level 2) and grade 4/C or above in either a science or design technology based subject.

Students who have achieved a level 2 Diploma in Electrical will be considered for this T level if they have achieved Maths and English to Grade 4/C or above.

You must demonstrate a minimum of 90% attendance at your last place of work or study.

If you don’t meet these requirements but want to start on your chosen career path, entry requirements for Foundation Programmes are slightly lower. You will need a minimum Grade 3 in English (language) and a Grade 4 in maths, plus two other GCSEs at grade 3 or above. If you don’t meet these foundation entry requirements, a Level 1 course may be an option for you, 4 GCSEs at grade 3 or above, including English and maths.

We will review each application case-by-case to ensure you get a place on the most suitable course.
