Cross Industry Skills Workshop Report
This was the first cross-industry workshop (part of a series) held using a virtual webinar platform.
The workshop revealed several sub-themes that are shared in common between industries, and it was beneficial to learn how challenges were being addressed by both the nuclear and oil & gas sectors’ representative organisations. For example, both sectors have;
- an ageing workforce;
- a need to plan for additional skills development as each sector considers how to capitalise on the impact of the new digital age;
- common need to attract a new, more diversified workforce in an increasingly competitive engineering biased market.
