SHEA Schemes: Information for Trainers and Training Providers

Why offer SHEA schemes to your clients?

At Energy & Utility Skills we collaborate with employers to help with the recruitment, training and upskilling of their workforce.

Our safety, health and environmental awareness (SHEA) programmes have been updated for 2018 to reflect the latest in training delivery methods and changing regulatory requirements.

All schemes in our SHEA portfolio are CSCS Partner card schemes. SHEA scheme registration allows access to CSCS controlled sites for utilities work.



Benefits to individuals and their employers:

  • Improved awareness of health, safety and environmental requirements
  • A more aware and confident workforce
  • Contextualised content makes it 100% relevant to individuals working in the industry
  • Interactive programme that caters for different learning styles
  • Delivered by trainers with first-hand experience in the industry
  • SHEA registrations allow access to CSCS controlled sites for utilities work.

Benefits to Trainers and Training Providers:

  • The schemes have been developed by the industry for the industry (developed with industry health and safety professionals who have the practical experience to ensure the scheme is of maximum value to employers and individuals)
  • Materials contain detailed industry knowledge, understanding and precise assessment criteria
  • 360-degree course content – fewer PowerPoint slides, more teaching ideas/activities, greater trainer support. There is detailed delivery guidance in our all-new Programme Leader’s Guide, which includes a plethora of resources and activities such as web links, videos and references to Codes of Practice, etc.
  • Interactive scheme that caters for different learning styles
  • Fit for purpose assessment – valid, accurate and current test items
  • Each scheme comes with a marketing toolkit to help you promote the course and win new business and/or the capacity for you to use your own training materials provided they are approved and map to ours

“The documents themselves will be a great asset to any trainer delivering this Core accreditation. The inclusion of mandatory & optional activities is a great idea and will really help to get the candidates thinking and also to reaffirm the messages this is trying to get across.  It also makes the programme more interactive for the candidates which should make it more engaging.”
