Green Careers Week 2023

November 6, 2023

Green Careers Week is an exciting event that raises aspiration, supports diversity, challenges stereotypes, and promotes real opportunities for young people to have a career that will genuinely make a difference. Discover careers, jobs, roles, and career pathways that are green careers and develop green skills.

A green career can be any job, role or occupation that contributes to preserving or restoring the environment and our planet. It can be any industry, not just those seen as ‘green.’ Green skills are abilities, attributes, values, attitudes, knowledge, and technical skills needed to adapt services, processes and procedures to support climate change.

Green careers are a fast-growing global employment sector that touches every company, employer, employee, and education establishment. Requiring everyone to work together to build a talent pipeline from school through to employment for the thousands and thousands of jobs and roles needed for the future. Green careers reach into every aspect of our lives and offer young people an exciting array of opportunities. There are green careers and green skills suitable for everyone.

Our learners will be discussing Green Careers throughout the week and how they relate to all of the subjects and lessons they study in school. They will look at a range of career areas and jobs and if they have the skills and attributes to work in one of the many up and coming Green Careers.

For more information please see our Careers page and also the Learner and Parent areas which have essential guides and information that you may find useful when discussing careers with our young people.
