The Powerskills programme aims to provide training and development for young people interested in pursuing a career in the utilities sector as they undertake a Foundation level 1 Engineering Programme.

Through completing the qualification, the young people have the opportunity to continue to study at the college, or be selected for the ScottishPower Pre-Apprentices Programme with the aim of ultimately becoming a ScottishPower Apprentice.

In year one of the programme, two young people from the programme went on to ScottishPower’s Pre-Apprentice programme with a further five achieving module credits from the course.  The second year saw another 4 PowerSkills students successfully secure  places on the ScottishPower Pre-Apprentice Programme with another 5 going on to further education with the College or another training institute.
