Their electrician arrived promptly, and was incredibly thorough and methodical in tracking down an elusive electrical fault in my house in January 2018. A very impressive bit of work indeed, and this firm is now at the top of my list for future electrical work. My thanks to all staff concerned.

The Grammar Electrical Gateway Program is a 2-day or 5-day apprenticeship for students aged 14-18 years to get practical experience of what it’s like to work as an electrician.
Students will ride along with an experienced electrician as they work on-site to solve different types of electrical problems around Auckland City. Students will learn first hand about the practical problem-solving skills that they’ll need if they want to become an electrical expert.
Key points for Students:
- See the day to day as an electrician in Auckland and if it’s the career for you.
- Explore around the city and work with your hands to solving different types of electrical problems.
- See the practical use of your math, science and people skills.
Understand questions like:
- What do electricians do?
- What is the career path as an electrician like?
- What different types of electrical jobs are there?
- What are the steps to go from apprentice to a fully certified electrician?

“As a careers advisor, it is my role to help guide young men into the workforce and provide them with opportunities where they can discover a suitable vocation fitting their qualities and interests.
For more than a decade now, Grammar Electrical has been an integral part of the success of our Student Pathways programme concerning the Electrical Trades. From meeting our time-sensitive need for boys to trail their career thoughts, to groups of students wanting extended experience in the electrical industry, Grammar Electrical has always said yes and prepared to make it happen. I can’t speak highly enough of their assistance to Auckland Grammar School and the confident and organised environment they provide our young men. This is critical as they experience first-hand what is it like to be in the trades.
I believe that undertaking an electrical apprenticeship is an excellent option for any student entering the workforce as some of our students research their career pathway between University and the Trades”
