UWE Bristol launches Skills Bootcamp in Achieving Zero Carbon Buildings to support employers in upskilling their workforce

Posted on

UWE Bristol is delivering a 12-week course starting on Friday 13 January 2023 designed to support employers from across the construction, engineering, and related industries to upskill their workforce to meet the current and future challenges of the climate change crisis through achieving zero carbon buildings.

Funded by the Department of Education, as part of the Government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee, helping everyone gain skills for life’ our 12–week Skills Bootcamp will give learners the skills and knowledge of the role that modern methods of construction (MMC) and new digital technologies have in delivering zero carbon. With one-day per week of learning, learners will explore these challenges through diverse and hands-on learning activities, case studies and live discussions to develop fundamental knowledge and then enhance those skills to take back and embed into their organisations and own roles.

Why is this Skills Bootcamp beneficial to my organisation?

Employers in the construction industry require people ready to face the challenges of a changing sector that needs to rapidly modernise and decarbonise. Recently the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government and the Construction Leadership Council have emphasised the use of industrialised manufacturing (MMC) and digital technologies as key to unlocking current competitiveness and sustainability issues in the industry.

As such, the industry is in urgent need of individuals:

  • with knowledge and awareness of MMC and the required integration of a complex supply chain working under just-in-time conditions.
  • that are digitally literate and capable of working with Building Information Modelling (BIM)
  • with knowledge and awareness of best sustainable practice, how to measure carbon footprints and how to implement effective carbon and energy reduction measures in new and retrofitted buildings.
  • able to collaborate and be part of a team.

By upskilling your workforce through our Skills Bootcamp in Achieving Zero Carbon Buildings, employers are committing to providing their employee with the opportunity of a new role or taking on additional responsibility in their current role, utilising the skills learnt. In return employers will benefit from an able and ready workforce to tackle future challenges in sustainable buildings and contribute to business and sector growth.

Across the 12 weeks learners will explore:

  • Session 1 – Introduction to Skills Bootcamp
  • Session 2 – Introduction to the Climate Change & the Net-Zero Carbon Building’s Challenge
  • Session 3 – Building Services & Zero Carbon
  • Session 4 – Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) for Zero Carbon (approaches and systems)
  • Session 5 – Site visit
  • Session 6 – Retrofitting for Zero Carbon
  • Session 7 – New Technologies for Zero Carbon (digital)
  • Session 8 – Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) for Zero Carbon (logistics and coordination)
  • Session 9 – Industry Symposium; Skills Development and Mentorship
  • Session 10 – New Technologies for Zero Carbon (MEP)
  • Session 11 – Learner presentations – How to Achieve Zero Carbon on Real Buildings?
  • Session 12 – Industry Symposium; Skills Development and Mentorship

Creative Industries spotlight: Gary Topp, Executive Director, Arnolfini

Posted on

Photo by Lawrence Bury, 2020.

Gary Topp joined Arnolfini in 2019 as Executive Director. He has led the team at Arnolfini through the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns and the many challenges and opportunities this created for Arnolfini and the wider sector. In the blog below he talks about his career, the importance of creative spaces and his future plans for Arnolfini.  

Gary has a broad and successful career in the creative industries. He started his career as a visual arts curator in museums, which quickly developed into the management and leadership space from his late twenties. His work with organisations that blend large scale project management with high level policy gave him a unique insight into the way that the public, private and third sectors interweave and the need to understand this cultural work within a broader social and economic framework.

Gary has been Director or Chief Executive of a range of cultural organisations over the past 20 years in both the UK and Australia and has worked with governments leading cultural strategies at both regional and city level.

“Throughout all of these roles I have remained passionately committed to the visual arts and to the vital role that cultural institutions like Arnolfini play in the life of cities. And I always admired Arnolfini’s long and influential track record. I still come to work each day as a fan and advocate for the part we play in the city, region and wider cultural sector and feel very lucky that my combined skillset was the right one for Arnolfini when I joined in 2019.”

With Gary’s exciting career, it’s unsurprising he has many highlights including delivering large scale events such as the Indian international Film awards in 2007 or Birmingham Commonwealth Games handover ceremony in 2018. He’s also secured and delivered millions of pounds worth of projects and investments with many wonderful partners in a range of cities and places. However, the chance to lead and implement change at Arnolfini is a real highlight.

“I am hugely proud to have been allowed the chance to lead Arnolfini and re-establish it at the forefront of cultural venues in the UK. Since joining in early 2019 I have had many moments launching exhibitions, hosting talks and events, establishing our UWE Bristol relationship, surviving COVID lockdowns, building community partnerships and working every week with a talented and committed group of colleagues and this all feels like a career highlight.”

Gary is a huge believer in spaces like Arnolfini and believes that creative spaces make a hugely important contribution to where we live in many practical, social and emotional ways.

“We can talk about our role in the visitor economy, or in the many ways that creativity is vital for entrepreneurism across many industry sectors; or we can reflect on our role as a community space for learning or welcoming new refugees to the city; or for the way that we animate and support city centres and nightlife.

Our audiences and communities often tell us how we act as a place of joy and inspiration with the ability to use the powerful impact of art and culture to promote new ways of experiencing the world. All great towns and cities have strong cultural centres at their heart and those that don’t generally wish that they did!”

“The creative industries have proved enormously resilient in the face of many challenges over the last 25 years (since the term first came into general usage) and this is a testament to the talent and determination that characterises the hundreds of thousands of people that work in them. But if we also understand that this talent can achieve more- socially as well as economically- we need to keep creating the environment and support systems to release even more talent.

To do this we need to unlock talent wherever it is in our communities and develop pathways of education, skills development, business change and massive amounts of cultural curiosity and creative capability everywhere. Universities like UWE Bristol, and cultural venues like Arnolfini, can create amazing alliances to unleash all of this latent capability!”

UWE Bristol have a strong partnership with Arnolfini, working together under the branding of ARNOLFINI x UWE. The purpose of the “x” signifies that Arnolfini’s work is amplified by partnering with UWE Bristol, who share similar cultural, education and research agendas.

“Developing and delivering this partnership has been a key driver of my leadership at Arnolfini and it manifests itself in lots of different ways through a rolling set of projects. Each year we host the degree shows in our galleries, stage dozens of joint events and activities for public and students alike and we continue to develop research partnerships and student placements. This means that whilst Arnolfini remains an independent charity we have a strong and important relationship with UWE Bristol that brings lots of mutual benefits.”

This is a very exiting time for Arnolfini. Under Gary’s guidance, they have successful got through the pandemic and are now anticipating over 700,000 visitors this year.

 “Like every organisation we try to improve each week and we will continue to focus on broadening our community impact whilst also developing our work internationally.  

Our daily work with our communities matched to the international reach of our exhibitions and cultural programme is a huge amount of work for a very dedicated small team.

Arnolfini is a strong cultural brand as well as a big building in Bristol and we look forward to working with our partners to develop and extend our project portfolio in many new and interesting ways. Our relationship with UWE Bristol will, of course, be front and centre in those plans.”

Thank you to Gary for this interview. Find out what is happening at the Arnolfini.

Getting the show on the road

As part of Black History Month 2022, we are spotlighting individuals working around the following themes:

  • Skills
  • Innovation
  • Research
  • Business

This week we are focusing on Business:

UWE Alumni and Green Skills speaker Julian Mensah is Founder of Electric vehicle (EV) subscription service Voltric, whose aim is to remove barriers to reducing car emissions, making it more practical, cost effective and efficient to access green sustainable transport.

Along with Co-founder Brent Oldfield, another UWE Alumni, Voltric has gone from a concept and two Renault vehicle three years ago to expecting a total fleet of over 200 by the end of December, with plans to expand this to 1000 cars on the road next year, including models from Tesla, Mercedes, Renault and MG.

The idea for Voltric came from the creation of a business plan for Julian’s MA in Marketing at UWE in 2018, he wrote about electric cars and the business around supporting the transition from internal combustion engines to electric vehicles. Redundancy from a Product Management position encouraged him to revisit the business plan, which had never been far from his mind. Following a meeting with his Marketing Lecturer and an introduction to UWE’s Team Entrepreneurship he met business partner Brent, a student on the course.

He has been involved as an inspirational speaker from the outset on Green Skills for Jobs and Entrepreneurship, a transformational programme delivered by UWE in partnership with Black South West Network and NatWest. Aimed at increasing accessibility, knowledge and awareness of opportunities in the Green Sector. The sessions have been such a success that Voltric will be welcoming three fully paid Interns into their business under the Green Skills programme this year, giving them valuable experience in green technology. 

“If I can inspire and encourage Black and minoritised young people to think about the opportunities around tech and where that can take them, that’s not only something that benefits them individually, it ultimately benefits the whole community.”

“And I love that on Green Skills we’re talking not only about business, but about sustainability as a whole, how we can live in a sustainable manner.”

“If I was going to give any advice to myself before starting on my business journey, it would be to celebrate the small wins along the way. My life is so busy, being involved with Green Skills and connecting with the young Learners has been so enjoyable. It’s different from my every day and has helped me to reflect on all the successes we’ve had so far at Voltric and those to come in the future.”

On these courses, delegates cover the basics of air quality management, including what causes air pollution and its effects, before looking at monitoring and modelling techniques using ADMS-Roads. They also learn about the role of planning in air quality and explore how air pollution can be tackled through technical and non-technical measures. 

The courses align with the University’s commitment to sustainability. 

Course lead and Associate Professor for Clean Air, Dr Jo Barnes, commented on the success of the courses:  

“Our IAQM-accredited Air Quality CPD short courses, underpinned by our research and teaching, aim to provide a comprehensive overview to enable those with little or no knowledge on the subject, to those with years of experience, the tools and ability to apply their learning in their workplaces. The combination of extensive access to online materials provided in advance, the live presentation and interactivity of the practical sessions, really bring this subject to life and gives delegates the chance to also learn from each other.” 

Course attendee Amelia Rivers, Environmental Health Officer commented:  

“The learning I will apply back at work will be the importance of monitoring air quality when looking at planning applications and really think about the potential effects on air quality the proposed application can have.” 

Black History Month 2022: Innovation focus

Posted on

As part of Black History Month 2022, we are spotlighting individuals working around the following themes:

  • Skills
  • Innovation
  • Research
  • Business

This week we are focusing on Innovation.

Mayowa Olanrewaju is a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) Associate for Harris Evolution Ltd. A KTP scheme is a UK-wide programme helping businesses to improve competitiveness and productivity. Businesses are provided with applied knowledge and technical expertise to help transform the business.

Based in Bristol, Harris Evolution is a commercial refurbishment company, specialising in quick turnaround projects carried out whilst the buildings are still in occupation. Harris’ work is targeted within three main sectors; Education, Healthcare and Hotel/Leisure.

The 24-month KTP project aims to implement transformational innovation through an Advanced Services approach to contract design and development of leadership capacity, which is led by Dr Kyle Alves , Dr Mel Smith and Professor Gareth Edwards. Through the collaboration with UWE Bristol, Harris will move from a standardised service offer to implementing outcome-based service contracts, tailored around individual customer value.

The aim of the project is to transform Harris Evolution LTD into adopting advanced services to the way contract is been set up. This entails getting to know what the customers exactly need and tailoring a service that best suits their needs.

Mayowa commented on the importance of innovation within the project:

“Innovation is so important because companies of the future will be defined by how quickly they can transform and digitalise their processes and respond to their customers’ demands. In a fast-paced supply chain where customers’ needs are constantly changing, organisations need to be ready to satisfy their customers fast. In our own case, I am looking at how we can leverage on Internet of Things(IoT) to understand the customer asset usage and how we can develop a value proposition

We have all seen the benefits of UBER, AIR BnB, 4G, 5G and so on using innovation to succed. Businesses need to be aware of emerging technology if they want to remain competitive. The organisations of the future will be fully digital and we all have to prepare for it. However, the government need to do more to help SMEs in their transformation journey so they can remain competitive”

Mayowa also talked about the benefits of a KTP:

“There has always been this disparity between academics and the business world as they both have unique ways of doing things so having the opportunity to bridge that gap in a partnership is a wonderful opportunity only KTP can give. The business world is now coming to terms with growth and development academics offer and if properly harnessed, businesses can see the benefits in their annual turnovers.”


Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) are funded by UKRI through Innovate UK with the support of co-funders, including the Scottish Funding Council, Welsh Government, Invest Northern Ireland, Defra and BEIS. Innovate UK manages the KTP programme and facilitates its delivery through a range of partners including the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), Knowledge Bases and Businesses. Each partner plays a specific role in the support and delivery of the programme. 

Black History Month 2022: Skills focus

As part of Black History Month 2022, we are spotlighting individuals working around the following themes:

  • Skills
  • Innovation
  • Research
  • Business

This week we are focusing on Skills:

UWE Bristol in partnership with Black South West Network and NatWest are working to deliver the Green Skills for Jobs and Entrepreneurship (Green Skills) programme. This is an initiative funded by the UK Government’s Community Renewal Fund (CRF) and managed by the West of England Combined Authority (WECA) on behalf of the Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC).  

Green Skills is a unique and transformational programme that provides access to jobs, training and business opportunities to Black, Asian and minoritised young people (aged 18-28) and recent graduates living in Bristol, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset, Bath and Northeast Somerset.  

Mayor of Bristol Marvin Rees joined our most recent cohort of learners on one of our programme delivery days, where he spoke to learners about leadership, the Bristol One City plan and the city’s declaration of a climate and ecological emergency drawing on its intersection with racial and social justice and the need for a just and inclusive transition to a greener workforce.   

It was fantastic to meet with young people taking part in the Green Skills for Jobs programme and discuss their concerns and ideas for responding to the climate crisis. It is particularly encouraging to see minoritised communities representing the full diversity of our city given space to engage in these issues and bring solutions to the table.  

We know the impacts of the climate crisis will disproportionately impact minoritised groups, both locally and globally. We also know that there is a huge opportunity for young people to benefit from green jobs and skills, where there is growing demand and expansion. This programme highlights the need to tackle economic and climate justice together and I look forward to seeing what the group go on to do next.

UWE Bristol positive action internship wins outstanding partnership award

Posted on

The Strive Internship scheme, a partnership between UWE Bristol, Hargreaves Lansdown and Bristol City Council, has recently won the Institute of Student Employers Outstanding Partnership Award at their annual awards.

Inspired by the ambition of the national #10,000 Black Interns initiative, Hargreaves Lansdown in partnership with the Mayor’s Office, Bristol City Council and the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) launched the regional Strive Internship scheme.

Drawing on recommendations from McGregor Smith’s 2017 Race in the Workplace Review, this five-year long positive-action scheme aims to have a long-term and sustainable impact on the lives, career and earning trajectories of young Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students and recent graduates in the region.

The programme created 45 paid internship opportunities, across 20 organisations in the region for Black students living or studying in the West of England.

The positive-action initiative offers Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students living or studying in the region the opportunity to gain valuable paid work experience across a wide range of sectors each year, providing critical training and development opportunities, mentoring and sponsorship. Their aim is to have organisations from across the region join together to have positive conversations around diversity and inclusion.

Jessica Tomico who sits on the board for the Strive Internship and is a Business Development Manager at UWE Bristol commented “We are delighted that the excellent work of the Strive Internship has been recognised at the Institute of Student Employers awards. The initiative is a great example of how organisations in the region can work together to have a lasting positive impact on the careers of young Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students and recent graduates.”

UWE Bristol celebrating world Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise Day 2022 

Posted on

UWE Bristol are proud to work with many Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) across the region. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) account for up to 90% of businesses, 60% to 70% of employment, and they account for half of global GDP, according to the United Nations.  

To celebrate World MSME Day 2022 we are sharing some recent work and projects with MSMEs.  

In this short video, we highlight three SMEs we worked with as part of our Scale Up 4 Growth Scheme. In partnership with NatWest and Foot Anstey, we gave SMEs access to grant funding and business support to help them scale up. In the below video we hear from The Bristol Loaf, Wiper and True and 299 Lighting about how the funding has helped transform their business.  

Spotlight on Bristol 24/7  

Bristol 24/7 are one of many MSMEs we are supporting through our Skills for Clean Growth programme and our Digital Skills programme.  Below is some feedback from Meg Houghton-Gilmour, Community and Memberships Manager.

Tell us a bit about what you are doing as an organisation to support sustainability goals in the region? 

At Bristol24/7 we’re really proud to be in the process of recruiting a dedicated climate and sustainability editor. We are the first local media organisation to do so as far as we know, and we’ve created this role to engage conversation, inspire people to take action, hold authorities and companies to account and report on the positive work already ongoing in Bristol.  

This is alongside our work to become more sustainable as an organisation. We are currently working with Action Net Zero to assess our carbon footprint, from which we will set goals to minimise our impact on the planet.  

We believe that working together is the best way to tackle the climate crisis. One of the defining values of our Better Business network is sustainability and we share ideas, opportunities and resources with our business members at our quarterly meetings.  

What steps have you taken to ensure you have a diverse workforce to drive forward these aims? 

Diversity and inclusion are at the heart of all of Bristol24/7s plans. We recognise there are considerable barriers to working in journalism and we are aiming to level the playing field at every opportunity. We are continuously improving our recruitment process to make it welcoming and accessible to all those who are interested in working with us. We have redesigned our work experience programme and we are working to introduce a career ladder so that those who have their first taste of journalism with us are invited back for longer placements and interviews for entry level positions.  

We work with the most underrepresented areas of Bristol to train new journalists in our community reporters programme. Our entire team take part in setting our goals and strategy for the year ahead and every voice is heard; we believe this allows for more robust decision making and creativity which are essential when tackling problems such as the climate crisis.  

What support have you received from UWE Bristol, and how has it contributed to these aims? 

We’re extremely grateful to UWE Bristol for their support. Over the last 12 months, our team have benefitted from Digital Skills support and training which has informed our membership strategy. We now also have a stronger marketing strategy which helps us capitalise on the support from our community and grow our membership – the result of which is that we can offer more work experience placements, train more community reporters and work with charity partners. 

More recently, members of our team have also taken part in the Skills for Clean Growth workshops. We already feel more confident in addressing our own carbon output, and we look forward to attending more workshops as we set our new goals, induct our climate editor and take the next steps on our sustainability journey.  

What successes have you seen as a result of the above work? 

In the last year we have seen a 30% growth in our membership, which has provided us with the resource to grow our team, including interns from UWE Bristol, and increase our social impact work.
