We also offer a range of professional development courses through the Sustainable Constructed Environments consortium (BESUSSED) and the Wales Energy Sector Training (WEST) programmes.
Is funded under the EU KEF Consortia for Industrial Training fund. The project aims to develop pilot training material for courses at Level 4 and above by HE partners with guidance from the rest of the steering group including the Sector Skills Councils.
These courses are structured so as to be understood and be of use and relevance to the landscape and associated construction industries. BESUSSED focuses on all aspects of the design process to improve the overall sustainability of a building. It looks at low energy design through the use of renewable energy and the sourcing of sustainable materials, the construction process and how to address the problem of providing sustainable buildings that meets the social needs of communities in Wales.
Is funded under the EU KEF Higher Skills fund. This project arises from the need to promote the uptake and rapid commercialisation and exploitation of research in the field of energy, as acknowledged in the creation of the Welsh Energy Research Centre (WERC), through the provision of skills development training and education for Welsh SME's.
Through collaboration with the appropriate sector skills councils this project aims to build a training and education initiative to compliment and promote the existing and current research undertaken in the member Universities while enabling SME's, Universities and Sector Skills Councils to interact to develop a forum for energy sector skills development agenda for Wales.
