Green Skills post COP26 panel


This November, the UK appeared on the world’s diplomatic stage as host of COP26. The UK’s COP Presidency puts a special spotlight on domestic emissions reductions and highlights the importance of the way in which we develop skills among our workforce and educational providers. Developing green skills is key to unlocking the societal change required to develop a net zero economy.

In the context of COP26, and following the recent budget and Spending Review, this session will explore what skills business sectors need to develop among their workforces, and what changes educational providers will need to bring about. This includes exploring some of the current barriers educational institutions may face in embedding sustainability skills in their curriculum, for students including those seeking professional development.

The event will be chaired by Nicola Richards MP.

Speakers include:

  • Celia Charlwood, Head of Government Affairs, Make UK
  • Vicky Coy, Head of Innovation Projects, Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult
  • Teresa Frith, Senior Skills Policy Manager, Association of Colleges
