Employers through the National Skills Academy for Power take a national approach to Power Sector skills needs and related provision to identify skills gaps and avoid duplication. The Skills Academy ensures a long-term strategic view of the skills needs to 'future proof' the sector across the whole of the supply chain.

The delivery of the Skills Academy's strategic objectives will not only stimulate the market to drive up the volume of Power Sector learners, but also ensure that a complete learning infrastructure (career paths, qualifications, materials, training and trainer capacity) is in place to deliver the quality and consistency of skills and competency necessary for the Power Sector to safely continue to 'keep the lights on'.
