ColegauCymru is delighted to lead a project that will play an important role in co-ordinating plans for expanding retrofit and wider green skills provision across further education institutions in Wales.
Funded by Welsh Government, and working in partnership with key stakeholders, the project will support colleges as they prepare to meet current and future Welsh Government demands for green skills development - part of their Net Zero Skills Action Plan.
The project will support the development of skill requirements necessary to:
- help create green jobs in renewable energy, net zero emissions and the nature-based sector;
- allow specific sectors such as energy, transport, construction, agriculture, and manufacturing to support the transition to net zero emissions; and
- establish more generic requirements across all sectors that drive a net zero economy.
ColegauCymru Director of Development, Kelly Edwards said,
“ColegauCymru is well placed to lead a project to co-ordinate retrofit and wider green skills provision across FE colleges in Wales. The sector is already developing capacity to meet these new skills needs through innovative and bespoke solutions.”
“This project will enable a deeper understanding of current provision and good practice that is already in development. The project will also enhance understanding and facilitate information exchange with wider stakeholders in several key areas.”
