The UK Government have set challenging targets for the UK to reduce carbon emissions and create a greener economy. The emerging green jobs which respond to this priority require a new range of knowledge and skills across a variety of industrial sectors. However, UK colleges are not experiencing significant increases in demand for training and so are creating innovative new programmes to attract students to respond to this need.
This presentation will provide examples of initiatives in English colleges to devise new qualifications, curriculum structures and curriculum support to up-skill UK workers to meet the demands in the economy for low carbon and sustainable jobs. Examples will be drawn from a range of sectors, including construction, motor engineering and hospitality. It will also consider how the generic educational experience provided to all students can prepare them to adapt to the demands of a sustainable, global economy.
