The best way is to apply for an apprenticeship with a reputable engineering or M&E firm. This would probably mean studying for an NVQ level 3 2357, which covers both theory and practical installation skills . This course you are looking at is probably the C&G2365 which is mostly focused on electrical theory; if you want a JIB Gold card you'd still need your NVQ level 3 and AM2 (both cover practical skills).
You need a few years of supervised electrical work before you can consider yourself a reasonably competent electrician, even then you are still learning after 10 years and you never stop learning unless you are happy to limit your potential.
