Course Description

The Power Sector covers the activities associated with the generation, national transmission and local distribution of electricity, up to, and including, the customer's meter. The Power Sector faces some key challenges including an ageing workforce and a skills deficit in craft and technical roles.

This Apprenticeship provides a sustainable opportunity to address the current and future skills shortages identified by the sector. It will support the attraction of new entrants by providing a structured route to job competence and career progression and can also be used to up skill existing staff. It provides the ability for employers to “grow their own” workforce where technically competent individuals are increasingly difficult to recruit. The Apprenticeship enables employers to identify managers of the future and support succession planning whilst delivering tangible benefits such as reduced staff turnover.
