The Energy Skills Alliance is a cross-industry group led by OPITO, bringing together leaders from across the oil and gas, renewables, nuclear and refining industries, as well as representation from within regulators, governments and trade unions.
The key programmes of work the Energy Skills Alliance have set out aim to develop an all-energy workforce for the future:
Future Energy Skills Demand and Supply - The production of a clear forecast of energy skills demand, for both the short term and up until 2050, will be key in understanding the training and support needed to deliver a just energy transition. The recommendations created from this programme of work will be invaluable for the continual development of the energy workforce.
Integrated STEM programme - The STEM focused programme gives young people a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the life of engineers, scientists, managers and technicians - showcasing the whole energy mix. My Energy Future launched in May 2021 and aims to generate conversation between users and young people already working across the energy industry.
All Energy Apprenticeships - By delivering an integrated energy apprenticeship scheme, transferable skills will be developed and nurtured from experts in the field – ready for the new workforce to utilise across the energy mix. Broadening apprenticeship programmes aims to protect the UK’s reputation as a global centre for energy skills.
All Energy Training and Standards - An all-energy training programme designed for the existing workforce, in conjunction with the North Sea Transition Deal’s People and Skills plan, is being developed to continue the strengths already established in the oil and gas sector – but providing the next leap of transferability to alternative energy careers. The People and Skills plan will reskill, inspire and enable the fluidity of people across the energy sector.
