APTUS apprentices gain hands on experience

Empowering the next generation and promoting the energy industry as an exciting career proposition is one of OPITO’s long-standing priorities.

Our aim is to inspire young learners to consider a potential career in the energy sector and implement innovative learning initiatives that promote the uptake of STEM (Science Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects and energy careers.

From individual scholarships to global STEM initiatives

We recognise that to deliver effective STEM initiatives we need to partner with expert organisations. In the UK, OPITO has an established strategy to support Science Centres based in Glasgow, Aberdeen and Dundee.

From apprenticeships and scholarships through to events facilitated by My Energy Future, we lead and support a wide range of activities that are designed to engage the next generation in the future of energy, and the part they can play. 


My Energy Future

A talented and enthusiastic workforce is one of the energy industry’s most important assets. My Energy Future brings industry and the next generation together.
