Energy and Utility Skills is a membership organisation that brings together industry leaders to identify and address the skills challenges of the energy and utilities sector. It helps employers to attract, develop and maintain a sustainable, skilled workforce through their specialist services. Their UK-wide membership is comprised of the major infrastructure companies within power, gas, water and waste management. They also engage with governments, regulators and other senior stakeholders to develop a supportive policy for the system.
Energy & Utility Skills and the Collab Group work together on the production and communication of thought leadership papers on critical issues including, but not limited to, apprenticeship levy, technical education, Brexit and the Industrial Strategy. We have a collaborative relationship in which we promote each other’s work and attend, speak and exhibit at each other’s conferences and events.
Energy and Utility Skills focus on a number of areas to promote skills in the utility sector:
Production of up-to-date, detailed analysis and advice on the state of skills and employment.
The online register of individuals’ training and skills for the energy and utilities sector.
Programmes that generate intelligence that inform organisations of the impacts of internal and external factors on skills and labour acquisition.
Enabling employers to successfully recruit new talent.
Collab Group has produced a series of policy recommendations that we think should inform the direction of future government spending within the further education sector.
Today we are kicking off our #createdatcollege campaign. In this blog our Cheif Executive Ian Pretty provides an overview of the campaign.
