On 11 October our Managing Director Peter Duffy attended the House of Lords for the signing of the EU Skills Accord charter and therefore the commitments of this initiative aimed at plugging the skills gap in the sector.
The Skills Accord is:
- a new way of advancing the energy and utility supply chain to generate the required workforce capacity and capability
- a series of commitments requiring signatories to commit to relevant skills development within their own business and encourage the same through their supply chain
- 5 commitments designed to promote and lock in sustained investment in skills our sector most needs
- focussed on formal training programmes targeted in areas of current and future skill shortages to ensure impact in the right place
