The UK's low carbon economy has grown significantly in recent years, delivering a turnover of £122bn in 2013 and employing 460,000 people according to a recent study by BIS.
With the international climate change negotiations in Paris providing a fitting backdrop, this event will explore how UK skills policy and universities, employers and apprenticeship schemes can better equip the UK's workforce to benefit from the employment opportuntities that the low carbon economy has to offer.
Speakers will discuss how to embed broader sustainability skills throughout the learning and apprenticeship process and explore how businesses can best work with higher education and training institutions to ensure students are taught the skills needed in the workplace.
