The Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (The Institute) is setting up a new advisory panel for green apprenticeships – and they want to hear from you.
The purpose of this panel will be to identify opportunities for new green apprenticeships, and to advise on how existing apprenticeships can become greener.
In a statement on their website, the Institute said: “This panel will help focus our efforts and make sure the right skills are in place for the future workforce to deliver the green technology shift the UK needs.”
To ensure that the panel meets its aims, the Institute is seeking representatives from the following sectors:
- Renewable energy
- Green transport (electric/hydrogen)
If you wish to join the panel, you will be asked to advise on the following:
- Enhancing current apprenticeships to ensure they meet the needs of employers within the green economy.
- Creating apprenticeships to reflect new roles that address the challenge of reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
The first meeting of the panel is set for mid-December, with further meetings running approximately every eight weeks throughout 2021. The Institute will host these meetings with support from BEIS, the Department for Transport, and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.
Besides the panel, the Institute is also looking to engage with an advisory community. The purpose of this community will be to explore wider views about green apprenticeships.
If you would like to join either the panel or the advisory community, please complete the expression of interest form by midnight on 13 December 2020.
If you have any queries about the panel role or the advisory community, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
