The National Skills Academy for Power (the Skills Academy) works in collaboration with leading employers, including Balfour Beatty, E.ON (UK), National Grid and Scottish Power, to develop the quality and consistency of training in the power sector.

Through Think Power, an initiative of the Skills Academy, key UK power companies and training providers have joined together to champion the benefits of working in the power sector, which offers: job security, a variety of work and great training and development opportunities. Think Power aims to encourage more people into the power sector, which in the coming years will need to recruit 50,000 technicians, craftspeople and engineers for key projects.
