Supporting Industry on the path to Net Zero
The energy transition is coming and it is essential that the UK workforce has the correct skills for net zero to take advantage of the jobs which will be created by new projects and initiatives. The ECITB works with employers, training providers and Government to ensure the engineering construction workforce has the skills for today and for the energy jobs in the future.
Within the engineering and construction industry (ECI) that means making sure we have the technical skills to deliver on the UK government’s clear commitments to decarbonise existing industry, build new hydrogen, nuclear and carbon capture facilities as well as the project management capability to work in a more collaborative, connected way and to challenge the status quo.
The ECITB is one of the leading voices around the path to net zero and contributed to the UK Government’s green jobs taskforce looking at the workforce and skills requirements to support the Energy Transition. The ECITB works with industry to identify and address the required engineering skills for net zero. We develop training standards to meet industry need, such as Statutory Inspection and Maintenance of Wind Turbines and the Energy Transition and Wind Turbine Technician Scholarship programme targeted at up and coming industry professionals.
