Strategic Purpose Statement
This National Certificate is an introductory qualification for people working in the electricity supply industry. It combines a broad, common foundation of electricity supply skills, with additional specialist skills and knowledge in the form of optional strands to suit the nature of particular trades or enterprises.

The compulsory section of the qualification includes standards relating to the protection of personal safety and health; general knowledge of the electricity supply industry; communication skills and basic work-based skills. The optional strands contain standards chosen to match the range of work available in an apprentice's enterprise. This qualification with the Electrical Optional Strand incorporates fifteen standards out of a total of sixty-one standards that meet the core competencies required by the Electrical Workers Registration Board (EWRB) for electrical registration under the Electricity Act 1992.

This qualification is intended to be a prerequisite for those people wishing to progress to National Certificates at level 3 for all sectors of the electricity supply industry. It is envisaged that additional strands will be added to this qualification in the future, providing comprehensive coverage of all the career pathways available in the electricity supply industry.

People who have completed the qualification with the optional Electrical Strand can continue on to the National Certificate in Electricity Supply (Electrical) (Level 3) with strands in Electricity Supply Electrician, Electrical Fitter, and Electrical Technician [Ref: 1294]. People who have completed the qualification with the optional Electrical and Electrical Fitter strands can continue on to the Electrical Fitter Strand of the National Certificate in Electricity Supply (Electrical) (Level 3) with strands in Electricity Supply Electrician, Electrical Fitter, and Electrical Technician [Ref: 1294].
