The Skills Academy enhances an already strong academic offer in Scotland, with a targeted focus on green industry courses.
With the Scottish Green economy destined to grow even faster than it already has, ensuring there is an available supply of skilled workers is more important than ever.
The Skills Academy offers short and fast turnaround skills training, through to high end technical and digital skills. This provides core skills to those learners that are untrained and/or inexperienced in modern industrial settings and supports the continuous development of existing/skilled individuals.
This will enable a steady supply of ready-made workers as manufacturing companies grow and adapt to the opportunities the growing green economy will create, offering core base skills and enhanced job prospects for people entering the green sector industries.
