UCT is now approved to deliver Power Skills Scheme Fitting units, the only UK provider approved, at present.


Designed to establish good practice across distribution network operators (DNOs) and transmission operators (TOs), the scheme sets common standards for the training and assessment of core skills, reducing the need to duplicate training as individuals move between sites or employers.

The Power Skills Scheme covers core technical competencies, which are transferrable between DNOs and TOs, and includes ongoing quality assurance from Energy & Utility Skills.  While each DNO still needs to grant separate authorisations for each individual, the core craft competencies won’t need to be retested, reducing training time and duplication of effort.
