International renewable energy consultancy Natural Power is celebrating the success of Scottish based employees Pauline Boardman and Jean Pooley who recently gained their Level 3 Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQ) in Management.

The SVQ’s assess competence in terms of skills, knowledge and understanding, principally in a professional work situation. Minerva, providers of quality training in Dumfries and Galloway, were the assessors and course providers and the awarding body is OCR (Oxford Cambridge and RSA Examinations).

Natural Power provide proactive and integrated consultancy, management and due diligence services across the onshore wind, offshore wind, wave, tidal, solar and biomass sectors.  The company employs some 270 renewable energy experts in the UK, France and North America, with the company’s Headquarters, the iconic Green House based outside of Dalry, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland.

Pauline Boardman, Commercial Accountant and Jean Pooley, Head Receptionist at Natural Power commented: “It’s definitely been a challenge completing each module while trying to carry out a normal days work but we are really pleased to have finally completed the SVQ.  A huge thanks must go to Gwyneth, our Training Manager, from Minerva People Ltd, who supported and helped us every step of the way.”

Ted Leeming, Managing Director at Natural Power congratulated Pauline and Jean: “I am delighted to hear that Pauline and Jean have received these qualifications, a great achievement which they have managed to complete whilst also performing their normal work activities.
