Your Instructor


Martyn Isherwood
Martyn Isherwood

My name is Martyn Isherwood, a fully qualified electrician, tutor, and assessor with over 20 years of combined industry experience.

I will help you achieve the all-important NVQ Level 3 qualification in order to obtain your JIB ECS Gold Card. We will do this by working together, with me compiling your NVQ portfolio. This will be through the use of remote online observations and an occasional professional discussion. Together we can make the NVQ process a painless, fast, and easily obtainable qualification.

You will be guided through the process from start to finish and all the paperwork will be documented, then processed for you. All I require from you is the submission of your photographic evidence to support your qualification and your signature on some paperwork. I will complete the majority of the NVQ paperwork periodically.

This will allow you to concentrate on what really matters, which is the electrical work that you undertake at your day to day job.

A few words about me:

Since leaving school, I worked as an apprentice and maintenance Electrician, then gained more experience within a local contracting company installing in the following areas; industrial, commercial and domestic.

More recently I have taught electrical and electrical installation courses (City and Guilds and EAL approved) within various colleges and private industries as a lecturer, programme leader and assessor.

This has given me a good insight into both the electrical contracting industry and the educational sector.

I have delivered the courses listed below:
• 18th Edition
• Inspection & Testing
• PAT Testing
• Apprenticeship courses

As well as assessing NVQ portfolios in person and on line. I also hold Assessor and Internal Verifier qualifications.

Working together, we can achieve the qualification you are after!
