The Electrotechnical Skills Partnership (TESP) delivers projects to support the industry's skills needs.

We strive to maintain high standards of relevant, valued vocational training; inspire young people to choose electrotechnical careers, support re-training and upskilling, provide useful information about valid career routes and ensure qualifications are robust, rigorous and meaningful.

Training Routes

TESP has developed a series of recommended training routes to provide clear direction on the right paths to becoming a qualified electrician. Hosted on the Electrical Careers website, the routes are designed to educate school leavers, career changers and those looking to upskill within 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.
