The Norstec Academy wants to find a new generation of skilled offshore workers

UK offshore renewables industry alliance Norstec has launched a skills initiative called The Norstec Academy in a bid to engage the next generation of offshore wind talent.

The first phase of the programme – aimed at students in the UK further and higher education sectors – will ask entrants to set out their interest in the offshore renewables sector.

Those judged the best will get the chance to spend a week of site visits and events, meeting and learning from experts in the high-quality group of organisations that have signed up for the programme – a list including The Crown Estate, Siemens, Areva, Dong, Statkraft and Narec.

Julian Brown, chairman of Norstec and Areva Wind’s UK country director, said: “The Norstec Academy showcases the unique and diverse career opportunities within the offshore renewables industry.”
