The Humber will become a centre of excellence for energy skills by creating a virtual campus that brings together the best knowledge, experience and facilities to define and drive a skilled Humber workforce driven by the needs of business.
The Humber LEP’s Employment and Skills Board is leading a collaboration between employers, the University of Hull, FE colleges and specialist training providers to build on the region’s expertise and become a centre of excellence for energy skills.
The Energy Campus aims to enable the creation of a sustainable skilled workforce that will maximise the Humber’s economic development in the energy industry.
The Humber Energy Campus will soon offer an online single point of access to opportunities to show prospective learners and investors the breadth and quality of the energy related courses and training on offer.
Humber businesses and those from outside the area looking to invest in the region will be consulted to understand their needs to help our education and training partners provide the right balance of high quality courses for the Humber Campus.
The partnership will work to raise the aspirations of Humber people by raising awareness of the career paths available through from Primary School pupils to adult learners.
The intelligence gathered by the partners as part of the process will be used to drive research, development and innovation.
