Worcestershire holds the first Green Skills Week

The Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership and Worcestershire County Council held the first ever Worcestershire Green Skills Week programme from Monday 6 to Friday 10 December.

Following on from the COP26 conference and the growing need to create a sustainable world for the future, the Worcestershire LEP and County Council built the Green Skills Week programme working closely with the county’s schools and colleges to inspire young people about the green skills they will need in the future.

The week long programme featured a plethora of activity from discussions with key local businesses and educational establishments to downloadable resources and online videos which helped to bring the new green skills and careers needed to reach Net Zero Carbon Emissions to life.

All activity as part of the Green Skills Week has been made available on the Skills4Worcestershire website to allow students and schools to revisit the content when needed to help bridge the gap between education and businesses.

Gary Woodman, Chief Executive of the Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “I am really pleased that we were able to run the Green Skills Week programme for Worcestershire schools and colleges. It is crucial that we help young people across the county understand how the drive towards creating a more sustainable way of living will create new Green skills and Jobs in the future.

“I would like to thank all of our partners who supported the week long programme and I am thoroughly looking forward to expanding on this work in 2022.”
