Closing the UK's green skills gap 939.91 KB

The UK is facing acute skills shortages across the sectors it most urgently needs to decarbonise. By looking at the needs of the future green economy, the authors of this paper find that the government can deliver on both its net zero and levelling up agendas by developing a new green skills programme. The programme envisaged will include practical measures for industry, such as a ‘super skills deduction’ for people as well as machinery, and support for individuals via loans and grants to reduce the risk of retraining. These and other measures will build a workforce fit for the 2030s, filling good quality jobs across the country.
