JTL Training

Established over 30 years ago by the Electrical Contractors’ Association and Unite the Union, JTL is a not-for-profit organisation offering apprenticeships, traineeships, assessment services and professional development training across the electro-technical and mechanical engineering services sectors.


About JTL Training

JTL currently works with 8,000 learners and 3,500 employers across England and Wales in more than 100 locations. JTL has dedicated training facilities in Carlisle, York, Barnsley, Nottingham, Birmingham, Norwich, Oxford, Orpington, Maidstone and Ashford.

As an OFSTED recognised ‘good provider’ and a registered charity, every penny JTL receives goes into the training it offers.

JTL holds contracts with the Education and Skills Funding Agency in England and for Welsh Government funding in Wales.

JTL has evolved to also provide a growing choice of professional development training for those already working within the industries.

In 2018, we also became one of the first organisations in the UK to receive the prestigious ‘Leaders in Safeguarding’ quality mark for our approach and the effectiveness of our safeguarding arrangements.
