ECA's Luke Osborne joins Green Apprenticeships Advisory Panel
ECA's Energy and Emerging Technologies Solutions Advisor Luke Osborne has joined the Green Apprenticeships Advisory Panel.
The green apprenticeships advisory panel will help focus efforts to make sure the right skills are in place for the future workforce to deliver the green technology shift the UK needs.
Luke Osborne said, "I am honoured to have been invited onto and to now be a part of the Green Apprenticeships Advisory Panel. All of us look forward to helping existing and new apprenticeships to become part of the solution to the problems of climate change."
The panel will advise on two main areas:
- 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
The panel will also work closely with the Green Jobs Taskforce set up by the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and the Department for Education to develop an action plan for creating the necessary new green jobs and skills. The panel will look at how apprenticeships can play a key role within this.
The panel will be supported by an advisory community of employers. The community will offer greater expertise on particular occupations. They will share insight with the panel and help them shape their final recommendations.
