    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    The Climate Emergency Skills Action Plan (2020-2025) (CESAP) has been developed in direct response to the Scottish Government's declaration of a Climate Emergency and increased legislative targets to meet net-zero emissions by 2045. 

    CESAP sets out a clear direction for the reorientation of skills systems and signals the role that businesses, communities and individuals will play in supporting a just transition to net-zero. 

    The magnitude of change required to achieve net zero demands a significant increase in ‘green’ skills and education – transitioning to a low-carbon, greener economy implies the creation of new jobs in environmentally friendly and sustainable production. 

    The key to success will be to ensure that everyone has access to, and benefits from opportunities.

    Guest speakers: 

    Sue Lane, Green Skills Manager – Fair Work, Employability and Skills Directorate

    Robert Orr, Strategic Relations Manager for Energy - Skills Development Scotland 

    Frank Duffy Code Division – Agile Learning Centre.
