SSE - Training Centre

Improving skills and providing jobs in tough economic times

  • SSE's new £5 million Training Centre will provide instruction to improve staff skills across all parts of the company's business as well as management training.
  • Over 2,000 trainees are expected to pass through the Training Centre each year. In 2010/11, SSE recruited around 200 school leavers, trainees, graduates and apprentices in Scotland, all of whom benefited from the new facility.

The state-of-the-art Training Centre in Perth is making an important contribution towards the country's economic recovery by improving skills and offering training to schoolleavers and apprentices.

The Centre provides trainees with development opportunities and the operational skills for working in all parts of SSE, including electricity generation, electricity and gas networks, home services, energy effi ciency, electrical and utility contracting, and smart meter installation.

Jim McPhillimy, Group Services Director said: "High quality training is good for the people receiving it, for the organisations that employ them and for the economy as a whole. SSE's Training Centre is a state-of-the-art facility which will help add to the skills base in SSE and in Scotland. It is a very worthwhile and exciting development."
