TESP was formed in 2014 as a response to changes in the skills landscape, notably a desire from the government to put education and training firmly in the hands of employers and industry.

Through the combined resources and expertise of the five core partners – the Electrical Contractors’ Association (ECA), Joint Industry Board (JIB), National Electrotechnical Training (NET), SELECT and Unite the Union – TESP is able to provide:

  • A collective industry partnership to drive action on behalf of employers and the industry
  • A coordinated and consistent response to skills issues for the electrotechnical industry, from entry through to ongoing development and progression.
  • A single coherent body to set and maintain standards for the electrotechnical industry, including specialist groups
  • A single voice and point of contact for government and stakeholders on electrotechnical skills issues
