Careers Resources

The Electrical Careers website highlights the wide range of roles, progression routes and opportunities available within the electrical industry. TESP produced this website and also an exciting careers video to feature on the site, which shows the technical and mathematical skills needed to join the industry.

Industry into Education

Attracting and recruiting talented young people into the electrotechnical industry is essential if we’re to secure a skilled and competent workforce for the future. We need to support schools and colleges so they, in turn, can drive young people towards the electrical industry. Can you light up their imaginations?

Industry Approved Qualifications

TESP is working on an ‘Industry Approved’ qualifications campaign which involves developing improved guidance on routes into the industry, which qualifications are recognised or valued, and working with awarding organisations to provide better information for both candidates and training providers.
