Barlows Apprenticeship Opportunities Open to 15-16 year olds

The Barlows Apprenticeship scheme is now accepting applications from those leaving school this year, applications are being accepted up until the end of July, interviews expected in August and start dates in September.

Barlows are a leading electrical training provider headed by David Barlow who in 2015 was a member of the Electrotechnical Trailblazer Apprenticeship Development Group.  This group worked with Institute for Apprenticeships in setting the standards for apprenticeships in the electrical contracting industry.  David has been awarded an MBE in the 2019 Queens Birthday Honours for services to apprenticeships and to business.

Information about the Barlows Training Department can be found on their website at

Unlike other electrical contractors Barlows have their own in house training centre (Clifford College), all their apprentices attend the training centre rather than attending a local college.
