We are a national initiative to hit the target of a low carbon Scotland – currently supported by 38 teams of over 200 apprentices.

And this is just the beginning……

The opportunity

Created in collaboration with several Scottish colleges, Fuel change provides a unique opportunity for apprentices to answer one of the world’s most pressing questions.

This is their chance to make a real difference….

We know the answers to the issues affecting our planet are only going to come from one place, you. Young and talented individuals need to be given an opportunity to collaborate and innovate together.

Fuel Change has brought together five top organisations from across Scotland who are currently working with teams of apprentices. Each of them have set a challenge that requires only one type of answer — a low carbon one.

Fuel change includes three sprints and lasts around six months.

Sprint 1

Three week sprint where teams select their challenge.

Sprint 2

Four week sprint to work on their chosen challenge, develop concepts and explore the creative process.

Sprint 3

Assisted by the partner organisations relevant to their challenge – teams will hone and develop their concepts and showcase their solutions.

Fuel Change is supported by Skills Development Scotland, the Scottish Funding Council and five global employers.
