i5: Open Green Jobs Training Centre

3 supporter

Decarbonisation will require lots of skilled and trained professionals, who can deliver on transforming existing and building new infrastructure, whether it’s installing electric vehicle charging units, or retrofitting homes etc. We suggest creating a new Green Jobs Training Centre, that would also provide re-training, so people, who have worked previously in the fossil-fuel sector (e.g. gas engineers) can transition to new professions (e.g. heat air pump engineers). We would like to see a training centre that offers high quality training with courses and certificates that meet the highest international industry standards. Ideally the training and re-training would be subsidised, to encourage more people to seek transition into green jobs. A training centre of this kind has been opened recently in London: https://www.fenews.co.uk/press-releases/72834-institute-of-technology-to-play-key-role-in-training-for-green-jobs  

Rationale
If we want to get people on board, we must show them the opportunities that the decarbonisation transition provides, such as new green jobs. This provides an opportunity not only to re-skill, but also provides a big opportunity for the young and/or unemployed in our area. It should be made easy for people to pursue a career in/transition into these new green jobs. Opening training centres across the country and subsidising the training would facilitate that. Moreover, by creating a local/regional high-skilled workforce for green transition, the transition itself can progress much more quickly and smoothly. By having such a Training Centre in our city, our area can establish itself as a leader for the green transition nationwide, facilitating innovation and the creation of new green businesses.
