Our collaboration with local authorities, further and higher education providers, employers and key stakeholders aims to influence and shape green employment and skills provision, both now and in the future.
We want to drive job creation and sustain these jobs, while maximising the potential of the shift to a green economy. We want to secure the development and delivery of high-quality green skills training.
This will help to tackle deep inequalities in London’s labour market and put ‘local’ at the heart of the devolution agenda for skills.
As part of its commitment to support green skills delivery, the Department for Education is providing £2.4 million via its Strategic Development Fund, to develop this partnership.

This work is being further supportedby the Greater London Authority’s Mayor’s Skills Academies Programme. This collaborates with 11 colleges, nine London Boroughs and over 30 employers to help achieve the Mayor’s ambitious net-zero targets and improve the green and digital curriculum offer across the Capital.
