On the 25th April 2015 Trade Skills 4U will celebrate its 10th birthday. During that time they have established themselves as the UK’s leader in electrical training.

Trade Skills 4U originally started out delivering numerous trade courses including tiling, bricklaying, plastering and a few more. However fairly early on it became apparent that there was one area in which they excelled. Slowly as their reputation grew the electrical courses started to dominate their teaching schedule and in 2008 the decision was made to drop all other trades and become a specialist. Within just 2 years Trade Skills 4U had built a reputation which meant people travelled from all over the UK to attend their courses.

CEO Carl Bennett achieved this by focussing on the customer. He knew what the competition offered and simply put he knew he could do better. He moved the company to brand new premises which were bright and air conditioned, built state of the art classrooms with all the latest technology, employed many of the best tutors around. He also understood the power of the internet in the new marketing landscape.

By investing in his staff, premises and overall reputation Carl was able to grow the company to a point that it now delivers twice as many electrical qualifications than it’s nearest rivals. In 2013 Trade Skills 4U were recognised by the IET as the very first members of its Centres of Excellence Scheme where training providers are independently inspected to the highest of standards.

So how do you win a van?
All customers who book a course between the 1st April and 31st May 2015 will be automatically entered into a prize draw to win a brand new Vauxhall Combo Van worth nearly £17,000 inc VAT. At the start of June Trade Skills 4U will draw 3 finalists out of a hat. Those 3 finalists will be invited back to Trade Skills 4U to compete in a game of Giant Buzzwire. Whoever completes the Buzzwire challenge the quickest or gets the furthest will win the Van and the two runners up will also receive a brand new Kewtech KT63 Multifunction tester for their efforts.

The great thing about the competition is that there is very little for customers to do and the odds on winning this fantastic prize are very good indeed. It is estimated that the customers will have around a 1 in 600 chance of winning this prize.

To enter the competition could not be simpler. All you need to do is book a course between the key dates and you will be in with a chance. It doesn’t matter when you will be taking your course as long as the booking is made by the final deadline of 31st May 2015.

However as an extra bonus any booking in April will receive two entries into the competition doubling your chances to win!
