Newcastle College has continued to drive more than 175 students enrolled in renewable energy courses since 2018 in the North East.
The promotion is the latest in a long line of green energy-focused ads from the college and NCG, of which he is a member. Last year, Energy Director Allan Gundry was invited to be part of the government’s Green Task Force, and in September NCG announced a new environmental strategy to reduce emissions and waste in the seven colleges in the group. At the same time, Andrew Essen, director of industry strategy at Newcastle College, was recently appointed as the leader of the Energi Beach Skills Team.
The Energy Coast Skills Team is a collaborative program of local Northeastern universities, including Durham, Newcastle, Sunderland, Nor Umbumbria and Teesside. As well as institutions such as STEM Ambassador Hub, North East Ambit and Engineering UK.
In a recent survey of 10,000 young people at the University of Bathing, 60 percent said they were worried about climate change.
Andrew said: “I have spent my career working in and around the energy industry, but my four years of work with the Newcastle College of Energy Academy have taken me back to the Wind and Green energy sector and rekindled my passion for talent and development.
“I am delighted to take on the role of Chair of the Energi Beach Skills Team and take this opportunity not only to make the North East UK’s leading Coastal Renewable and Green Energy Skills Center, but also to showcase the youth. How the region can make a difference in a complex, global issue.
Driving the Northeast Green Agenda is a key part of Newcastle College’s 10-year strategy, and such partnerships will help provide future generations with the skills and knowledge needed to make a difference, make a difference, and create a better future.
One of the key objectives of the college’s broader strategy is to help the United Kingdom build a climate-related workforce in youth education and skills to achieve the goal of 2 million green jobs by 2030.
Sam Bulock, a graduate student at the Academy of Energy, commented: “I knew and understood the impact it was having on the planet, so I decided to enroll in a renewable energy and engineering degree. It would be a great way to play my role. I feel empowered because I have a better understanding of the big picture. ”
