The skills that employers need

the heart of economic development

Shaping the Future (StF) is about putting human potential at the heart of economic development. We want to attract investment and economic enterprise by providing a uniquely skilled workforce that helps employers do the business of the future.

Training people

We do this by training people who have existing engineering and technical skills. We add new, improved skills to their current abilities to provide the capabilities employers urgently need.

We work with the employees of two nuclear power stations - Wylfa in Anglesey and Trawsfynydd in Gwynedd - whose careers are threatened by decommissioning. We operate a training programme that supplements their current qualifications and abilities with new ones - ones that directly support the business of the future.
