A national approach to re-skilling, up-skilling and new-skilling the workforce is taking shape.

The UK needs to invest in technologies for electrification to meet net zero carbon commitments, meaning many employees and employers will need to re-skill, up-skill and new-skill.

How the transport and utility sectors can develop their workforce to meet this demand has been outlined in ‘The Opportunity for a National Electrification Skills Framework and Forum’ report.

The framework currently considers vehicle electrification as well as battery manufacture, power electronics, motors and drives. Learnings will next be extended to rail, aviation and utilities.

It is aimed at:

  • employers
  • training providers
  • accrediting organisations
  • learners.

The report recommends the use of short and long courses, plus continuing professional development, to deliver the competency sets to meet electrification goals across a range of sectors.

The report discusses how industry engagement, along with educational collaboration rather than competition, will be vital in putting the UK at the forefront of the electric revolution and securing future work opportunities.
