JAMES SAMPSONTechnical Curriculum Manager
Profile: James Sampson
As the Technical Curriculum Manger at Zero Carbon Futures, I have worked across the low carbon agenda for over eight years and bring a wealth of technical knowledge and training experience around the low carbon transport and construction built environment sectors. I am responsible for investigating future green curriculum skills and training opportunities through close development work with SMEs, industry and professional awarding bodies.
One particular project that I really enjoyed working on was HyTrEc where I was responsible for the design and development of a Hydrogen Awareness qualification which was endorsed by BOC in 2015.
