ECITB’s £1M investment in Regional Skills Hubs to benefit Scottish clusters

The Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB) has announced it will invest one million pounds for Regional Skills Hubs over the next two years to boost training provider capacity and grow new entrant numbers in the ‘Industrial Cluster’ hot spots that are at the heart of the UK’s decarbonisation agenda.

 

Andrew Hockey, ECITB Chief Executive, said: “We know that over the next few years, the UK will need in excess of 25,000 extra workers for major engineering construction projects, including those that contribute to the country’s net zero goals.

 

“In addition to building new renewable and nuclear energy capacity, we must also ensure that our existing industries undergo substantive decarbonisation.  This will need many more skilled workers.

 

“This investment will address the skills shortages by supporting training and assessment capacity-building projects in the UK’s industrial heartlands that will directly increase the flow of workers into the industry.”
