The move to net zero has the potential to create thousands of highly skilled, well-paid jobs across Scotland.
The Green Jobs Workforce Academy at greenjobs.scot is here to help you take a greener approach to your career, skills and job search.
The site is one part of a broad programme of work being taken forward through Scotland’s Climate Emergency Skills Action Plan.
It offers insight into the economic sectors at the heart of the move to net zero, Energy, Engineering, Construction and the Built Environment, Transport, Nature and Life & Chemical sciences.
Jenny MacDonald, SDS Skills Planning Manager, said “The energy sector is already leading the charge when it comes to Scotland’s transition to net zero.
All energy apprenticeships are just one example of the innovative, collaborative approach that is already delivering results.
“For anyone who is looking to take a greener approach to their current role, or start thinking about their next one, Green Jobs Workforce Academy is a good place to start.”
If you’re interested in becoming certified carbon literate, free climate emergency training is currently available on the site, as well as further information on the circular economy and case studies of real people already making an impact on climate targets across Scotland.
Upcoming developments will also see a skills discovery tool added to the site to help users understand how the skills they already have can be applied to greener roles.
