Power Generation and Renewables

Power Generation and Renewables

The Scottish Government is committed to generating 20% of total Scottish energy use from renewable sources such as solar, wind, wave or tidal by the year 2020.

Scotland has a wealth of natural resources — solar, wind, wave and tidal — to meet this target but there is one resource that we will need above all if we are to achieve it. A trained and highly skilled workforce.

That’s where SQA qualifications come in. SQA provide qualifications in the key subjects employers within the industry need. We provide a wide range of qualifications, at most levels of the SCQF, in the key skills areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Our engineering qualifications cover engineering disciplines where the industry is facing skills shortages.

All of our qualifications recognise learner achievement, demonstrate competence to work in the sector, and have been developed in close association with the industry.
