The ESP vision is of a college sector which works collaboratively to deliver the right skills, in the right place at the right time for the energy, engineering and construction sectors, maximising Scotland’s economic development and the generation of industry capacity for jobs growth.

Its aims are:

  1. to be the interface between Scotland’s colleges and government, government agencies, industry bodies and trade associations; and to provide influence and support skills developments across Scotland’s colleges;
  2. to play a key role in economic development and job creation;
  3. to establish a demand-led system that will deliver high quality provision based on energy sector needs;
  4. to work with partners to promote the energy, engineering, construction and STEM sectors as careers of choice and develop seamless pathways through schools to college to university
