Pathway to Renewables
‘How do I get into working in the renewable energy sector?’ is often a question we are asked from individuals at various stages of their careers.
We have pulled together some useful resources for those looking to begin a career or find work within the sector:
Scotland’s universities and colleges offer a fantastic range of courses and apprenticeships at various levels (Undergraduate / Postgraduate / Master's). These can be completed across various timeframes, from fast-track to full or part-time study.
- A full list of universities in Scotland and the courses on offer is available at www.scotland.org/study/scottish-universities. Use the ‘course search’ function to filter your search.
- ESP Colleges and Universities Map also provides a list of courses and apprenticeships from the energy, engineering and construction sectors, on offer at varying levels across a network of colleges and universities in Scotland.
- Conversion courses are intensive postgraduate programmes which allow individuals to pursue a career that their undergraduate degree or professional career has not prepared them for. The timeframes for these vary depending on whether you choose fast-track, full or part-time study. A list of available engineering conversion courses is available on the Prospects site. Use the filter function to refine your search.
My World of Work is a career information and advice website by Skills Development Scotland which offers a wide range of advice: from the skills you need, current jobs available and guidance on next steps if you are planning a career change.
Prospects is the UK's biggest graduate careers website and works in close partnership with higher and further education professional bodies and government to deliver unique services that benefit the sector as a whole. They offer a range of careers advice, from applying for university to jobs and work experience.
