Innogy, through the Forewind consortium, placed a significant focus on raising skills awareness during the early development of Sofia Offshore Wind Farm. Between 2012 and 2015, the Champions for Wind schools programme gave hundreds of 12 to 14 year olds a taste of the career opportunities, qualifications and experience required in offshore wind. The programme involved 30 teachers from 30 schools, including at least 15 from the North East. They developed teaching resources incorporating offshore wind into their respective curriculums. Some of those resources can be found here.
In this section we will collate resources that may be helpful for people who are looking for a career in the offshore wind sector. There are numerous different routes to careers and these links provide some hints and guidance.
