South Electrical logo

South Electrical

For over 25 years South Electrical has had a strong relationship with the RNN Group. Originally North Notts College, we benefitted from one or two apprentices qualifying per year. Through sustained organic growth the business now has over 35 apprentices at various levels with the college. Our training program is key to our success and brings loyalty, conscientiousness, and continuity. This in turn helps our customers benefit from safe, quality installations delivered efficiently and effectively. RNN helps deliver a strong academic background, coupled with workshop practicals. Site based work then really helps cement their knowledge through mentoring throughout the installation, followed by comprehensive testing and robust fault finding.

The relationship that we have with RNN helps identify any skills gaps that the learners may have and address regulation changes quickly and effectively. Through the launch of our Training Academy in harmony with RNN we feel that we can improve our offering to apprentices even further. Whilst the current curriculum satisfies the qualification, we feel we can really hone in on specific aspects of our training needs and tailor our offering to our clients requirements. Customer needs and expectations are paramount to us as a business so having an Academy with RNN will help us stay agile in the market place, provide longevity for the company with secure and sustained jobs. It’s a very exciting time and we’re very much looking forward to our new apprentices benefitting from the Academy.
