The electrotechnical engineers and installers of tomorrow are being urged to attend this year’s Skills Cymru event at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff, 10-11 October, during which numerous careers opportunities in the sector will be showcased by ECA and industry partners.
ECA's ‘Get Skilled’ stand will give young people invaluable insight into what it’s like to work in the modern electrotechnical and engineering services sector. Apprentices from the industry will also attend to share and discuss their experiences.
The stand will be highly interactive, hands-on and inspiring - providing visitors with the chance to try a new skill, talk to people doing the job and enhance their experience at the event with relevant hands-on activities.
These activities will include wiring up the latest switches and sockets, and thermal imaging. There will also be demonstrations on how to install smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, and an interactive home automation system that uses the latest smart technologies.
Partners include BESA, JTL, and JIB, who will also be providing interactive demonstrations at the event.
ECA South Wales Regional Manager Michelle Davies commented:
“ECA is delighted to be involved in this leading careers event, which provides an important step for young people in Wales who may be interested in a career within the electrotechnical and engineering services sector.
“We are grateful to our industry partners, who will be delivering stimulating interactive demonstrations, allowing attendees to gain a hands-on experience of the real tasks undertaken by professionals working within the industry.”
