With the UK recently recording its hottest temperatures on record, the climate emergency and its immediate implications are at the forefront of people’s minds. However, while the Government has made a concerted effort to push the UK towards its target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050, more needs to be done to equip people with the green skills that employers require. While these skills are vital for the many new jobs that are being created from the need to green the economy, they are also key in supporting existing roles and sectors to decarbonise.

Recognising the importance of this mission, Learning and Work Institute conducted research on behalf of World Skills UK (WSUK) to understand how the UK’s skills systems can help young people acquire the skills needed to support the UK’s transition to net zero.
