The Green Britain Academy to support green job creation

The Green Britain Academy has set out to support the creation of 700,000 new green jobs in the UK by 2030.

The GBA is an initiative founded by Dale Vince, Ecotricity founder and Forest Green Rovers chairman, along with John Robb, Mark Headley and David Cormack.

The GBA will support learners looking for new green skills, employers looking to upskill their workforce or recruit new staff and training providers looking to join the green jobs revolution.

It partners with some of the UK's most forward-thinking employers and matches them with training providers who work with the GBA to tailor and deliver unique programmes for the future needs of employers.

The aim is to create students who will be pioneers of the future low carbon economy in the UK.

The Green Britain Academy has pledged to support 5,000 learners in its first year.

Training courses are delivered nationwide and include Level 4 apprenticeships in commercial procurement and supply, and associate project management, along with a range of Level 2 and Level 3 courses.

Whether students choose to venture into green careers in digital tech, fashion, food, energy, construction, logistics, engineering or something else, the GBA runs a range of successful programmes to suit their aspirations.
