Case Study: Electrical Installation *suitable for home teaching*

Produced for Future Morph, these resources contain a video in which a student talks about her apprenticeship course in electrical installation at Exeter college. She describes the entry qualifications needed for her course, contrasts her experiences at college compared to school and briefly mentions health and safety considerations when working.

The associated activity illustrates a demonstration that can be used to show how an electric current transfers energy from a battery or power station to a lamp.

This video was created as part of the Future Morph programme from the Science Council and dates from 2008. Although historic, it is still relevant and useful today.

More details about the current activity of the Science Council can be found on their website, which includes the professional registration award for educators, Chartered Science Teacher (CSciTeach).
