There’s still time for employers looking to engage an apprentice in the electrical or heating and plumbing sectors to be entered into the prize draw to win a van as part of training provider JTL’s 25th anniversary celebrations.

It’s a quarter of a century since the ECA and what is today Unite the Union came together to form JTL, and this 25 year anniversary is being marked by a range of initiatives - including the chance for an employer to win a van!

JTL is keen to raise both the status of those working in building services engineering, and the appeal of a career in the electrical and heating and plumbing industries. It targets money and effort to ensure that more young people across a range of academic abilities see the merit of an apprenticeship in electrical installation and maintenance and heating, ventilating and plumbing. This includes working with careers advisors, and providing meaningful information to parents - illustrating the success stories of young people who have achieved great things through their apprenticeships.

JTL continues to grow and has opened multiple new training centres in the past eighteen months, including the JTL National Centre of Excellence in Birmingham.

Every employer who engages a JTL apprentice during the period 1 August 2014 - 31 July 2015 will receive a 25th Anniversary entry ticket for the celebration prize draw to win a silver Citroen Berlingo 1.6 HDi.

Only one entry ticket per company is being provided so the competition cannot be dominated by larger businesses that take on more than one apprentice.

Full details of JTL and the work it does can be found online at, or readers can call 0800 0852 308 free from a landline, for advice and literature.
