Join the new green apprenticeships advisory panel

Today the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IfATE) have published an invitation to join the new green apprenticeships advisory panel.

2 December 2020


The UK had a target to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, and the Prime Minister has set out a ten-point plan for a green industrial revolution. Skills will undoubtedly have a major roll to play in any post-pandemic recovery, and green skills will be even more vital.

The IfATE is getting up a new green apprenticeships advisory panel “to ensure apprenticeships are front and centre.” The panel will feed into the new Green Jobs Taskforce set up by BEIS and the DfE to develop an action plan for creating the necessary new green jobs and skills.

The panel will initially be asked to advise on two things:
•    enhancing our current apprenticeships to ensure that they meet the needs of the      employers within the growing green economy
•    creating new apprenticeship to reflect new occupations to meet the challenge to reach net-zero carbon

This panel will help focus the Institute’s efforts and make sure the right skills are in place for the future workforce to deliver the green technology shift the UK needs.

They would like business representatives from the following sectors:
•    renewable energy
•    green transport (electric/hydrogen)
•    manufacturing
•    engineering
•    construction
•    agriculture
