Level 2 & 3 Diplomas – Why EAL?
City & Guilds are often the go-to choice for many qualifications, so you may be wondering why we’ve chosen to use EAL.
Although we are already a City & Guilds centre (and our Managing Director a City & Guilds Examiner), after careful consideration, we’ve decided to offer our students the EAL Level 2 and Level 3 Diplomas. Although the lesser known awarding body of the two throughout all subjects, EAL are very well known within the electrical industry, so much so that they’ve extensively linked up with the NICEIC.
You can read more about EAL’s partnership with the NICEIC, here: http://eal.org.uk/news/70-intouch/1639-eal-and-niceic-form-strategic-partnership-for-electrotechnical-skills.
We also greatly favour the assessment structure of EAL’s Level 2 and 3 Diplomas. In contrast to one big examination being taken at the end of the course, the EAL assessments are taken on an ongoing basis throughout the length of the course. We also use this examination format within our Domestic Installer Course, and find it takes away a lot of the pressure and enables students to confidently focus on each step at a time.
Both the City & Guilds and EAL Level 2 and 3 Diplomas are interchangeable, meaning that if you’ve already completed the Level 2 with City & Guilds, you’re more than welcome to finish with our EAL Level 3.

*Our EAL Level 2 & 3 Courses are also known as the “Tech Cert” and are the Direct Equivalent of the City & Guilds 2365.
