Apprenticeship and training opportunities, as well as support for new business start-ups

The Yorkshire Energy Park will bring £200m of investment and 4,480 jobs to the local area, both during its construction phase and well into the future.

A flagship development for the UK, the park and its education provision will help develop green and technology skills for the future. People will be able to access apprenticeship and training opportunities to help them get into the job market, as well as support for new business start-ups.

Our Principal Education Partners, the University of Lincoln and CATCH, will establish a campus on site and aim to up-skill and re-skill those who use the base, retaining and bolstering talent and skills in key industries within the Humber region.
