Achieving the Victorian Government’s 95% renewable energy target by 2035 requires a massive increase in energy and storage capacity and the skilled workforce to support it.
Building and operating the energy assets Victoria needs is expected to create more than 59,000 jobs, including 6,000 traineeships and apprenticeships.
The SEC will partner with industry to work with schools, TAFEs and universities as well as government and Traditional Owners to find the opportunities and address the challenges so we can build the workforce we need.
The SEC will support the attraction, training and retention of a skilled renewable energy workforce. This includes establishing the SEC Centre of Training Excellence. The SEC will also model best practice as an employer and contractor.
