In-house Apprentices

At AES, we think we’re a class act when it comes to apprentices.  More than half of our employees have all been through an apprenticeship programme whilst at our company – that must be one of the highest in the industry.

As well as completing their apprenticeships whilst at AES, they have then stayed on at the end of their scheme – a great sign that they value the support we have given them and like working for us.  

Each year we invest in new apprentices as we continue to expand as a business. Each apprentice attends the City and Guilds course in Electrical Installation at Huddersfield Technology College.

I have used this company for all of my electrical problems for over 5 years no – that should say it all. Staff are polite, helpful, and they always clean up properly when the job is done.

Linda Burkinshaw, David Clouting Ltd

You company really understood how crucial it was for us not to have any downtime in our production area. Your services are excellent and your people are friendly and patient. I will look forward to working with you in the future.

Stacey Binns, Premier Vanguard

AES are professional electrical engineers across the whole spectrum – from audit, to fault finding and installations.
