Skills fund

Under the initiative Workspace and SSE Renewables partner to support the ongoing provision of learning, training, education and employment initiatives that help build capacity, tackle rural isolation, and increase employment opportunities.

Participants are able to learn new skills, gain qualifications and get back into the workplace.

The SSE Renewables ‘Learning for Life’ Skills Fund is funded from local wind energy across Tyrone, Fermanagh and Derry-Londonderry through the SSE Renewables Regional Fund. This Regional Fund, which receives financial contributions from SSE Renewables-operated wind farms in the region, already supports the SSE Airtricity Scholarship which has financially backed more than 150 local students pursuing third level education courses at Ulster University, South West College and North West Regional College.
