In Parliament today, Alan met a group of 11 students to support the Norstec Acadamy skills pilot. 

The pilot scheme aims to encourage young people get into the offshore wind sector. 

Alan said: 

“Offshore wind brings huge economic benefits, including jobs and expertise, to the UK and the industry provides an opportunity to invest in essential skills and training for young people. Today I was very pleased to meet some of the enthusiastic young people who will one day lead this growing sector.”

“The Norstec Academy pilot is an excellent initiative and I am pleased to be a part of something which will help build the next generation of talent and will hopefully secure the future of a major part of the UK economy.”
