SELECT in partnership with TESP is launching a new Labour Market Intelligence survey and we would appreciate your participation so that we can gather as much insight from electrical contractors as possible.
The Electrotechnical Skills Partnership (TESP) is a not-for-profit industry partnership formed by SELECT (and the SJIB), the Electrical Contractors’ Association (ECA), the Joint Industry Board (JIB), National Electrotechnical Training (NET) and Unite the Union to support electrotechnical employers to develop and drive the industry’s skills agenda.
The findings of this survey will provide TESP, BSE Skills (our new Standard Setting Organisation) and ultimately the industry with up-to-date analysis on the current and future skills needs of the industry and help us keep our training products and services relevant to those needs. It will also provide an excellent basis for measuring directional change in the future. Furthermore, providing the industry, the UK and Scottish Governments with robust labour market intelligence is one of the key strategic objectives of TESP and BSE Skills.
The survey will also help us to identify the emerging and maturing technologies for inclusion in the SJIB’s Apprentice and Adult Training Programmes (e.g. electric vehicle charging, battery storage, energy efficiency etc.).
The research is being carried out by Pye Tait Consulting, who will survey electrical, fire, emergency and security employers working in a wide range of sectors. Pye Tait complies with the Market Research Society (MRS) Code of Conduct and GDPR practices. Any personal information that is provided in this survey will be held in the strictest confidence and only for this project.
The survey will run throughout October 2018. Survey interviews are being conducted by telephone, or for those who prefer, there will be an online option available. To register your interest, please go to the Registration Page. The findings will be published in early in the New Year.
If you are contacted by Pye Tait in the coming weeks, we strongly urge you to take part in the survey and hope you can support this very important project for the electrotechnical industry.
