Six months into the employer-led Ownership of Skills Pilot, representatives from BIS (Business Innovation Skills) and the Skills Funding Agency attended a review with managing agents Humber Chemical Focus Ltd (HCF) and Cofely Fabricom GDF SUEZ (Consortium Leader) at the Competency Assessment Training Centre Humberside (CATCH) in Stallingborough. The purpose of this visit was to find out why the pilot in North East Lincolnshire has been so successful in such a short space of time and how it could influence other pilots, mainstream training and wider policies. Also, what challenges have been faced so far and understanding the pre-employment programmes (content, age of participants, accreditation etc).
The Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) has commissioned three consortia to design an advanced waste gasifier capable of achieving high electrical efficiencies beyond existing technologies. These consortia will compete to develop a plant to demonstrate the highest possible efficiencies for plants operating at a commercial scale of between 5 and 20 megawatts (MWe) output. The winning plant could be designed, built, tested and in operation by 2016.
