ESP is a member’s forum made up of Scotland’s colleges. ESP established in 2011 with a remit to enhance skills to meet industry’s needs and to support the diverse range of skills interventions required to maximise economic benefits as identified in the Engineering Skills investment Plan (SIP). This Engineering and Energy Themed Group was established in 2012 to lead on Engineering for Scotland’s colleges. The group was recently re-named to Engineering Strategy Group with a strong focus on future developments.
