Diploma in Electrotechnology
The City and Guilds 2357 Diploma in Electrotechnology is a comprehensive collection of qualifications in development to replace the outgoing 2330 qualification.
The 2357 qualification is aimed mainly at apprentices or those who do not have access to NVQ or SVQ but is also suitable for anyone looking for training to become an electrician and can be regarded as the main route into the electrical industry.
Why Take the 2357 Course?
The 2357 is an attempt to modernise the original 2330 qualification and aims to ensure that new electricians have both the technical knowledge and the practical skills that are required as a practising electrician.
The 2357 is being determined as part of the The Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) unit development and is presently undergoing finalisation. It is expected that the qualification will be Diploma size which means it will contain 37 or more credits, where 1 credit is equal to 10 hours of learning time.
The Electrotechnical qualifications have roughly an equal number of knowledge and performance units. The knowledge units are to be assessed via the e-volve online exam interface, or centre-based assignments and performance units will be assessed in the workplace, in the same way as the current 2356 NVQ. This means that the City and Guilds 2357 qualification cannot be studied entirely at a college or training centre as approximately 50% of the qualification will need to be assessed in a work environment.
This qualification is very comprehensive and as such will usually be studied on a full time basis. Studying for the 2357 on a part-time basis would likely result in around 5 years of study!
Some private training centres are offering this qualification on a Monday to Friday full time basis as it’s a very thorough and comprehensive means of training to become a fully qualified electrician.
