Darren Oates, Product Specialist at EAL, writes about the importance of electrotechnical competitions for learners and the important part that EAL plays in the sector.
In the last two years as the Managing Director of EAL, I’ve had the pleasure of attending various events celebrating apprenticeships. The two that I attended recently were particularly fruitful, and a great springboard into the National Apprenticeship Week. Both events celebrated the benefits of apprenticeships and highlighted how far we still have to go to convince the masses of the viability of the vocational route.
