For over 45 years, the ECA Edmundson Electrical Award has showcased the best talent in the industry.

After a hiatus since 2019 due to the pandemic, ECA and Edmundson Electrical is re-launching the Apprentice of the Year Award.

The awards will be presented on Wednesday 14 September at The Royal Society 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AG

Established in 1975, the ECA Edmundson Award is the premier training award in the electrotechnical industry. The award aims to recognise outstanding apprentices who not only have good technical skills but are role models for others in the industry. The award is sponsored by Edmundson Electrical with the administration and promotion from ECA. 

Why enter your apprentice?

The award presents a great opportunity to increase the profile of your business within the industry. Additionally, when your apprentices are recognised as the best in the industry, your business becomes even more attractive as an employer.
