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.
