Supporting industry skills development
Since its formation in 2014, The Electrotechnical Skills Partnership (TESP) has been working on various initiatives to support the industry’s skills strategy. Through the combined resources and expertise of four partners – ECA, Joint Industry Board (JIB), SELECT and Unite the Union, with support from industry charity NET, TESP has been leading on a coordinated approach to skills development and providing industry and stakeholders with a clear focal point for electrotechnical skills.
Involvement from employers on TESP’s board has also meant we are continually ensuring what’s being developed meets the needs of today’s electrical contractors.

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.
TESP is supporting the industry to upskill via its Careers Progression Programme. This initiative is run in conjunction with the JIB Mature Candidate Assessment scheme and allows electricians with a number of years’ experience to upskill and gain a formal qualification and their ECS gold card.
TESP has recently completed an exciting project working with NET to develop comprehensive labour market information for the industry. The report provides an up-to-date picture of skills issues, how roles and occupations are changing and considers the impact of new and emerging/specialist technologies.
