Raising standards and promoting professionalism

TESP works with employers to develop and set the training standards for the electrotechnical industry. This includes current and new occupations, and spans entry level through to upskilling and Continuing Professional Development (CPD), and includes provision for specialist areas.

Our aim is to ensure there is a coherent and holistic pathway between standards, assessment and accreditation for all electrotechnical professionals regardless of age or experience.

Our first major project in this area, the electrical industry careers hub, highlights the breadth and depth of opportunities within the industry and the training required to reach this level.
