Decarbonising Kent

As the world looks to its future following COP26, and sustainability become ever more important for both individuals and businesses to fight off the effects of climate change, EKC Group want to help engineering and technology businesses as they strive to become more environmentally friendly.

Following a successful bid into the Government’s trailblazing Skills Development Fund (SDF) scheme, EKC Group is delivering a project which will help the engineering industry decarbonise the sector, and drive greater sustainability throughout it.

Through the project our Group will develop and nurture links into local industry, driving decarbonisation through the promotion of better ways of working, whilst ensuring that as a training provider we’re delivering the skills which business needs to make sure it operates in a sustainable manner fit for the future.

Now we’re asking you as an employer to get involved…

  • Are there any skills deficits you’ve experienced?
  • What shortfalls are there in new employees that can be fixed?
  • How could your workplace and workforce be more sustainable?
  • How can we help you and your team?

We’re offering access to leading figures in the effort of decarbonising engineering, CPD opportunities and the opportunity for your business to access our Green Engineering Centres at our Ashford and Canterbury Colleges. Businesses will also get the opportunity to access KPS consultants to develop a readiness assessment plan. This will form the bedrock for businesses decarbonisation action plans, giving access to tools and information that will empower employers to develop a robust decarbonisation strategy for their business.

Working with sustainable manufacturing consultancy HSSMI, we will be holding a series of virtual workshops over the coming months which focus on best practice in decarbonising and future-proofing businesses of all sizes.

Our first, being held on January 27, will convey how to become carbon net zero and the skills required in employees to achieve that goal. We will also be looking at how technology and engineering can come into play in creating a greener future. Also scheduled is a discussion on the workforce of the future, the skills they will need and how to get the best out of them.
