Wind and Marine

Introduction

The energy sector is one of Scotland’s key economic drivers. With significant investment expected over the next 10 years including £30bn in offshore wind Scottish Government’s ambitions for renewable technology will require a national skilled workforce and talent pool for Scotland’s energy sector.

In response ESP secured £500k funding to establish the Wind and Marine Training Network, a formal college network to support large-scale renewables across Scotland.

Through funding ESP has supported the development of the Wind Turbine Technician course, now delivered across the network. To date ESP have supported over 150 Wind Turbine Technicians with a further 84 enrolled in colleges for 2014/15.

ESP have also supported Wind Turbine Technicians to gain other vital qualifications for the wind sector such as working at heights which allows students to gain work placements in industry by gaining first-hand experience of working at heights.
