Skills for a sustainable future
More than 50 million unique job adverts have been recorded since 2016 with demand forecast to rise as the UK transitions towards Net Zero. Whilst the definition of green skills is broad, green literacy and numeracy are skills that apply to every organisation.
Green skills are defined by CEDEFOP as the “knowledge, abilities, values and attitudes needed to live in, develop and support a sustainable society”. Develop your skills to contribute to building the circular economy, learn to sustainably manage your organisation, or become an expert in repair and upcycling techniques.
