Welsh Energy Sector Training

Project Aims

  • To develop and implement a Skills Needs Analysis
  • To develop skills to aid the utilisation and uptake of new technologies developed through the LCRI industrial research project

This will ensure that industrial research is disseminated through both traditional educational streams as well as directly to industry through Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

Research Areas

  • To review the current delivery of low carbon education within both the Further and Higher Education Sectors in Wales
  • To produce a low carbon educational programme for Wales and develop a continuation strategy, to ensure legacy and mainstreaming of the courses developed
  • WEST aims to deliver programmes at levels 4 and above, covering each of the key research themes within the LCRI, namely:
    • Hydrogen
    • Large Scale Power Generation
    • Low Carbon Built Environment
    • Marine
    • Solar PV
  • To work closely with relevant Sector Skills Councils, stakeholders and industrial representatives to ensure the training and education developed is appropriate to enable the development of the Welsh low carbon energy industry
