Utility Sector Training and Education
Research published by the UK Commission for Employment and Skills showed over a third of vacancies in water, electricity, gas and construction are now due to skills shortages. The age profile across the sector makes uncomfortable reading with some estimates suggesting one third of the workforce could retire by 2025.
Population growth is the key demographic change that will affect this sector. It is projected that by 2040 the population is to surge by nearly 10 million (15%), placing increased demand on our water, oil and gas resources. The Apprenticeship Levy being introduced in the UK this year (2017) requires all employers operating, with a payroll of over £3 million, to invest in apprenticeships.
Considering all these factors, the need for high quality staff training, education and development programs has never been greater.
