Triton Knoll is developing a robust skills strategy with the region’s local enterprise partnerships and local authorities. It plans to help local people become well equipped to challenge successfully for roles within the project, its contractors and the wider sector, both now and in the future.
The project expects to work with the region’s schools and colleges to inspire today’s young students to become the apprentices and engineers of tomorrow.
Triton Knoll believes that apprenticeships are key to tackling the demand for a localised, skilled workforce to support the project and wider renewables industry, so it is looking to partner with and invest in existing local schemes to support this.
Finally, the project is working with the local enterprise partnerships to ensure routes into work, core qualifications and the skillsets required are all clearly defined early on, so that training and learning initiatives are meaningful, valuable and targeted.
Keep a watch on the website for more information on each of these initiatives.
