Jenny Jackson continues, “The Net Zero sector faces a severe skills gap and our apprenticeship programme was designed to find, support, develop and retain the talented and enthusiastic individuals who will lead us to our net zero targets.  We certainly feel that Ibrahim and Aidan will make a huge contribution to the green energy sector over the course of their careers and we’re delighted their hard work and dedication have been recognised by BESA.

Both apprentices will now head down to an awards ceremony in London in early October where the winner of the National Technical/Project Engineer of the year will be announced.
