Green Skills for Jobs and Entrepreneurship

Green Skills for Jobs and Entrepreneurship is an award winning, transformational programme delivered by the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol).


The key objectives of the Green Skills programme are to support a just and inclusive transition to a green economy, close the skills gap between job opportunities and young people and tackle the underrepresentation of people from minoritised backgrounds in environmental careers, recognising that the sector is the second least diverse in the UK.


Young people are able to access an inclusive and equitable Green Skills curriculum delivered over 8 days of Real Living Wage (£10.90 per hour) paid training, coaching and mentoring provision with follow – up support into industry, research and further training opportunities.
