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 is part of a new UK Government green jobs taskforce looking at the workforce and skills requirements to support the Energy Transition. As well as supporting the taskforce, the ECITB is working on a programme to identify and address the required engineering skills for net zero, as referenced in the flyer below. Later this year, we will also launch an Energy Transition Leadership programme targeted at up and coming project leaders.
Net Zero Network
The ECITB has created the Net Zero Network to help industry develop the skilled, qualified and competitive workforce needed to deliver the energy transition.
The network – made up of industry professionals, subject matter experts and net zero pioneers – brings all engineering construction sectors together to identify and tackle key challenges and opportunities and support delivery of critical infrastructure projects.
If you have ideas to share about the skills, training and qualifications industry will need to deliver net zero then please get in touch below or join in the conversation on social via #Skills4NetZero
