At Options Skills, we place a significant focus on getting our students on the tools, enabling them to start learning the essential skills of their chosen trade asap.

Whether they’re undertaking our NVQ Level 3 Electrical Training Course or our ACS Domestic Gas Training Course, from day one of our courses, our trainees are placed in our training centre workshops.

To continue training and working towards earning industry-recognised qualifications, during step two of both our training courses, trainees will be required to undertake on-site work experience. Throughout this stage of training, students are asked to collect evidence of their work to build up a portfolio.

We are now offering a brand new service in which we are working to find placement opportunities for our students.

Students must work on-site alongside qualified engineers and tradespeople during stage two of our electrical and gas training courses. While doing so, they must collect evidence to build a portfolio of work.

On-site work is an invaluable experience for trainees and helps educate and prepare them for work once fully qualified.

Our students are more than welcome to find their placements or mentors. Many of our students begin training with us with a mentor already arranged for stage two.

However, if you don’t, you can utilise our services to assist you in finding a placement or mentor.

We have a dedicated Careers Development Manager building relationships with trades businesses across the country.

We do our utmost best to ensure placement opportunities are available*.

What this all means for you is that when you join Options Skills, not only do you receive high-quality training but you’ll also able to take advantage of several ways in which we can assist your career development.

*Placements aren’t guaranteed.
