Universal Skills is dedicated to supporting the net zero emissions targets and helping to protect future generations and creatures currently effected by climate change including sea turtles such as Flash! 

Training Towards a Greener Future

The courses we offer focus on improving understanding around renewable technology and how customers can benefit from switching from traditional fossil fuel use.

Whether it's our Smart Metering apprenticeship, EV or Solar PV, our courses are geared to up-skill those within the electrotechnical industry helping to build the infrastructure of the future energy sector one learner at a time! 

Giving Back to the Environment

Educating Our Community

We strive to educate our staff, learners and wider community around the importance of looking after the environment and the steps both businesses and individuals can take to reduce their carbon footprint.

 Energy Efficiency

We look to support schemes which help make us energy efficient whilst promoting the use of green energy. 

We have a built in Smart Meter within our Wakefield training centre to keep an eye on our energy usage and support the use of car sharing and using public transport to cut down on our carbon emissions.

Staff members have access to EV charge points at the centre providing an additional benefit to those considering battery and PHEV's.


We aim to support charities which seek to contribute towards a greener future, including the WWF and Marine Conservation Society who work to protect the worlds oceans and beaches from the effects of climate change and pollution and educate people around the current dangers to sea life.

Meet Flash The Turtle

Flash the Turtle encapsulates the spirit of what Universal Skills is striving to achieve, with a commitment to work towards a greener future through promoting our renewable courses, as well as doing our part to reduce our impact on the environment and give back where possible.

Why a Turtle?

The effects of climate change and its impact on the planet are clear to see when it comes to creatures like Flash. 

Population size across the various species have dropped considerably over the last 30 years as a result of erosion to their natural habitats and the rise in temperature on beaches where sea turtles lay their eggs. Several studies have shown that the change in temperature is influencing the gender of offspring during incubation, creating a shortage of males within the population.

Warming oceans have also impacted ocean currents, potentially introducing sea turtles to new predators and harming the coral reefs that some of them need to survive.
