The Independent, industry-led voice of renewables training, RTN develops courses and tools to aid career transition and drive down training costs

Renewables Training Network

The Renewables Training Network (RTN) was set up by RenewableUK to tackle the shortage of skilled workers in the renewable energy sector.

With the renewable energy sector experiencing rapid growth, a shortage of skilled workers and a lack of training opportunities could put the sector at risk.

In 2011, RenewableUK identified the potential skills shortage and won funding from the UK Commission for Employment and Skills to set up the RTN. The funding came from the Growth and Innovation Fund and was matched by contributions from RenewableUK member companies.

The RTN is now working with a wide variety of stakeholders to understand training demand and aggregate this need. Its primary focus is to address the skills gap by aiding transition from similar industries and developing accredited, 'RTN Assured' courses in the UK.
