Employers in Partnership: Skills for Effectiveness in the Energy Sector
Mexico is at its peak in terms of human resources availability, it is a young country with nearly 50% of the population being able to work for the next 20 years.
However, there’s a shortage of qualified workforce to fill in the demands of specific sectors – like energy - where technical skills are compulsory to perform effectively. This is the result of a disassociation between the education, the industry and the society.
The British Council -along with the British Embassy and other key partners- facilitated workshops in Mexico and Villahermosa to share the UK skills success and to promote dialogue between government, education institutions and private sector to propose an employer led skills strategy for the Mexican energy industry.
