Hydrogen Safe Joins Trafford Green Economy Skills Group

05 February 2024

It’s been somewhat of a whirlwind start to 2024, not least because we have been meeting with so many colleges and training providers to explain how our qualifications and certifications can be embedded into apprenticeships and the current syllabus.

In addition, we have been out and about meeting with strategic partners from the green energy sector. As a business, we want to make sure that we are a champion for training to ensure that companies have the skills required to embrace the opportunities that the green economy will present.

It is with great pleasure therefore, that we announce that Andy Lord, Founder and CEO of Hydrogen Safe, will join Trafford Council’s, Trafford Green Economy Skills Group as a member.

With an ambition to reduce its carbon footprint and create a pathway to carbon neutrality by 2038, the group supports this vision by bringing together representatives from the Council and private organisations to build the skills and expertise needed to deliver a green economy.

Developing actions to promote the take up of jobs and training opportunities in the green economy; gaining an understanding of employer needs to identify where the skills gap is, creating training pathways and sharing information on job roles are all objectives within the plan.

Andy Lord, comments: “It is a real privilege to become a member of the Trafford Green Economy Skills Group, not least to get around a table to discuss the imminent skills gap that will impact business if we don’t put in place the provision to address it.

“I would like to thank Trafford Council for welcoming Hydrogen Safe to the group. We know that with discussion, a sharing of ideas and action we can make the difference we need to, allowing everyone to benefit from the green economy.”

Councillor Liz Patel, Trafford Council’s Executive Member for Economy and Regeneration, comments: “As one of the first local authorities to declare a climate emergency back in 2018, we know that we have a lot of work to do if we are to meet with those ambitions. What’s more, we can’t do it alone.

“That’s why bringing public sector and private businesses together to discuss the topics that matter most makes sense. It means that we are dealing with the real issues, such as the skills gap within green energy, and creating a plan that will make us accountable for the progress that is made.

“We are very pleased to welcome Hydrogen Safe as a member and look forward to the contribution, as a specialist training provider in hydrogen, that the business can make.”
