RenewableUK has announced the creation of a new organisation, the Renewables Training Network (RTN), which will address critical skills shortages within the renewable energy industry.

Businesses in the renewables sector have pledged the equivalent of GBP 600,000 of support for the GBP 1.2 million project. The UK Commission for Employment and Skills (funded by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills) has matched this by awarding GBP 580,000 from the Growth and Innovation Fund to the new body. The shortage of high quality, industry-specific training institutions, courses and tutors is acting as a constraint to growth for companies in this rapidly developing sector. There’s a lack of opportunities for mature skilled entrants to re-train.  2,000 new transition training places will be delivered by the RTN over the next  2 years. By jointly investing in training, businesses will attract a diverse pool of trainees and provide them with access to up-skilling and employment.  The RTN will open new avenues for fast tracking the transformation of generalists into experts.
