Renewable energy education at Newcastle College is highly valued

As of 2018, more than 175 students have enrolled in renewable energy courses at Newcastle College.

The origin is the latest in a series of green energy-focused ads from the college.

According to Newcastle College, the broader strategy is to “help the UK build a climate-related workforce through youth education and skills to achieve the goal of two million green jobs by 2030”.

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.

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.
