The Future is Green project is a pioneering initiative dedicated to driving the transition towards a sustainable future.

 

With a clear focus on championing green occupations, this project offers individuals diverse career pathways for skill development and career progression from entry-level positions to advanced roles.

 

The project aims to break down barriers, empowering both individuals and businesses alike to embrace sustainable practices and accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy.

 

The Future is Green project is led by The Cornwall College Group (TCCG) in collaboration with eight highly experienced delivery partners across further and higher education institutions and training providers; Truro & Penwith College, Cornwall Marine Network, University of Exeter, University of Plymouth, Falmouth University, Focus Training (SW) Ltd, Urban Biodiversity CIC and Celtic Sea Power.

The partners aim to deliver a range of green courses and qualifications to upskill the labour force to bolster the future green economy and create opportunities for individuals to access and advance within high-quality, well-paid jobs. Employer-led, responsive training and provision will be provided to support the cultivation of a skilled and adaptable workforce necessary for green and inclusive growth.

 

The partners will work in partnership with the Growth and People Hub to proactively engage individuals in green skills training and qualifications. Plus, support businesses and individuals in high carbon sectors in training, to encourage faster green transition and investment.

 

The Future is Green project will support the Shared Prosperity Fund (SPF) strategic sectors and Local Skills Improvement Plan priority sectors, including:

  • Clean Energy / Power (such as FLOW and solar)
  • Visitor Economy (such as green tourism and sustainable food supply)
  • Agri-food / Natural Resources (such as decarbonising agriculture and nature restoration)
  • Construction (such as retro-fit, heat pumps and hydrogen boilers)
  • Transport (such as low/zero emission vehicles)
