Team NAPIT are once again taking on new challenges to fundraise for charity, and aim to raise £5,000 for The Electrical Industries Charity (EIC) during 2018.
The Electrical Industries Charity welcomes nine members to the Emerging Professionals Board who will be representing the views of the younger generation and will bring a fresh perspective into the electrical sector which is needed to help the Charity and the industry to move forward.
The Electrical Industries Charity teamed up with NAPIT to help young talent in the electrical sector to have a brighter future. The Charity is now encouraging NAPIT members to show their support for apprentices by helping them to progress with their chosen carers and drive the electrical industry forward.
Apprenticeships can bring countless opportunities for both young people who are looking to kick-start their career as they earn while they learn and progress within the electrical sector and also for the employers who seek to bring more diverse, skilled engineers into their businesses and drive the industry towards excellence.
