Energy Skills Queensland
Power Generators

Having a skilled workforce to meet the demands of large power generators (Stanwell, CS Energy and CleanCo) is imperative to the economy and sustaining all industry sectors.  ESQ closely follows developments from generators to ascertain which current and emerging technologies will affect the workforce profile. This information is then fed back to the government and education sectors to influence decisions on funding, development and training delivery.

Associations

Associations represent members and provide them with specialist knowledge and legislative/regulatory knowledge.  As such associations develop large databases of industry information that is useful to ESQ from a workforce planning and skilling perspective, ESQ engages regularly with Industry Associations and relevant Unions on skills and training requirements.

Private and Government Owned Contractors

Communication with private and government owned contractors is vital to understand the operational requirements of everyday life on the tools.   Their feedback provides ESQ with a practical understanding of how job requirements are changing and how skills need to adapt to these changes.  Contractors are also a valuable source of information with regards to safety requirements and how safety standards can be used to improve safety on the job site.

Education Sector

The education sector plays a vital role in training the energy workforce of the future. ESQ acts as the conduit between industry, government and the education sector to give our insights to the education sector regarding skills needs whilst also giving feedback to the government from the education sector on matters affecting Training Packages, qualifications and learner efficiency.

Government

ESQ interacts with a variety of governmental, statutory, educational and private institutions to develop actionable industry intelligence that will contribute towards strategic development of energy workforces within our regions.  These stakeholder engagements allow us to follow decisions, policies and investments that influence the profile of the energy workforce. Through its engagement and industry intelligence, ESQ ensures that QLD government and industry is kept at the forefront of trends and movements in the sector.

Wholesalers and Retailers

Wholesalers and retailers develop a vast knowledge base on technology and the various equipment that are utilised in the workforce.  This information, if combined with vendors, provides significant insight into the skills requirements for installation, operation and maintenance of electrotechnology equipment.
