Green skills – next steps for policy, and priorities for education and training, businesses and the workforce

Date of event 23 May 2023

Time 08:30 - 13:00

Location Online

This online conference focuses on priorities for growing the green skills economy in the UK.

Taking place against the backdrop of the net zero transition, delegates will assess key opportunities and barriers for meeting current and future workforce needs.

With Government committing to create two million green jobs across the UK by 2030 and the recent publication of Former Energy Minister Chris Skidmore’s Net Zero Review, the conference will be a timely opportunity to consider what is needed to address immediate and long term primary skills shortages across areas including:

  • low carbon heating
  • sustainable aviation
  • renewable energy supply chains
  • environmental land management

Delegates will consider what is needed from Government and educational training and industry stakeholders to help businesses and industries attract new talent, retrain the existing workforce, and develop new curriculum and training pathways. They will also focus on opportunities and barriers around funding, with local authorities calling for a national framework for green jobs.

Gemserv’s Head of Analysis, Rob Honeyman has been confirmed as one of the speakers for the event and will be taking part in the panel session:

Priorities for education and training providers in meeting the needs of the future workforce – greening the curriculum, developing new qualifications and apprenticeships, upskilling and training provisions, and addressing diversity inequalities
