Certificated Training Programmes
An Introduction to Electrical and Plumbing Skills
An immersive five-day programme aimed at pupils in senior phase of secondary school who would be interested in finding out if they have the skills required to undertake a career as an electrician or plumber. This project has been developed in partnership with Ayrshire College and links directly into employment opportunities for Modern Apprenticeships or progression to further study.
Pupils enjoy a site visit to a current building project, go behind the scenes of our stately home Dumfries House to see how modern technology has been adapted to a historic property and try various technical challenges in both plumbing and electrics resulting in an Access 3 award relating to the discipline. The programme concludes with a careers fair with employers where pupils can discuss in detail the roles and responsibilities of job roles in the industry.
