Supporting Manufacturing

The Skills Academy enhances an already strong academic offer in Scotland, with a targeted focus on green industry courses.

As manufacturing companies grow and adapt to the opportunities the growing green economy will create, we want to enable a steady supply of ready-made workers and enhanced job prospects for people entering the green sector industries.

The Skills Academy offers short and fast turnaround skills training, through to high end technical and digital skills. This provides core skills to those learners that are untrained and/or inexperienced in modern industrial settings and supports the continuous development of existing/skilled individuals.
