West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper is calling on residents looking for apprenticeships to apply for roles that could help transform the UK energy sector and reach net zero climate targets.
The schemes are run by National Grid which sits at the heart of Great Britain’s energy system. Their research shows that the UK energy sector needs to recruit for 400,000 skilled jobs right across the country between now and 2050 to get the UK to net zero.
They are currently looking to hire for their apprenticeship programmes which offer opportunities to foster and shape the skills needed for a green energy future through a mix of studying and hands-on experience, transforming the interest young people have in tackling climate change into a reality.
Rosie Cooper MP commented,
“Energy sector apprenticeships are vital to building the workforce that will help the UK tackle climate change. We know young people are passionate about this agenda, and these programmes provide a great opportunity to be part of the generation finding solutions and delivering on climate ambitions at a critical time in the UK’s path to net zero.“
National Grid are the first apprenticeship provider to be rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted for three consecutive years.
The deadline for apprenticeship programmes is 27 February 2022.
