The Skills and Education Act after 16 years in England introduced a number of measures to improve skills and the training landscape, empower employers to improve the quality of apprenticeships and give priority to green skills.

TESP welcomes the launch of the Bill on Skills and the positive impact it will have on its work to continuously improve the development of electrical skills, training and career development. “With employers firmly at the heart of the system, this will allow our industry to develop consistent training pathways and ensure that only high-quality technical qualifications as valued by employers and industry will take place in this new landscape,” he said. Ruth Devine, Chairman of TESP and Managing Director of SJD Electrical. “TESP will continue to work in the best interests of the industry with employers at the helm.” Working with Ruth on the TESP board is Vice President Nathan Smith of ESP. With its employer-led board, by consulting with industry-wide employers, developing labor market information and building a clear picture of future skills needs, TESP presents employers’ views and acts as an industry voice to the UK government and decentralized administrations in the field of electrical engineering skills problems.
