The report by Yasmin White, Tom Bradley, Beccy Packer & Emily Jones demonstrates a stark disconnect between increasing employer demand for green skills and young people’s lack of knowledge. A lack of awareness of green jobs and what qualifications support progression to these roles is thwarting young people’s aspirations for careers that can combat climate change and drive clean growth.
In particular, this frustrates young women's aspirations to gain the high-quality skills businesses require to reduce emissions. The report also suggests that the language of ‘green jobs’ and ‘green skills’ is yet to resonate with young people, despite their commitment to sustainability.
