Advancing Apprentices and Trainees through a range of Sustainability focussed Vocational Education and Training options.
‘Green jobs’ are the jobs of the future – and are vital for transitioning to a lower carbon economy.
Early research has shown that young Australians are amongst those most motivated to protect and preserve the environment. Do you believe working in a environmentally sustainability workplace would offer you more meaningful and fulfilling work? ??As part of a national survey, we would like to hear from you. The Survey will take around 5 minutes. This investment in your time may help shape policy and direction in Australian workplaces.
Your survey will remain anonymous (there is an opportunity to discuss your thoughts further should you wish)
Thankyou in advance?The Greenskills Research Team
WPC Group – Proud Partner of National Skills Week – October 1-8, 2011 National Skills Week is a new initiative, a collaborative approach dedicated to raising the status of practical and vocational learning, enabling all Australians to gain a greater understanding of the opportunities, their potential and how they contribute to a successful, modern green economy. Learning by doing is as important as academic learning - there are many paths to success.
WPC Group are dedicated to providing such pathways to those seeking a skilled career and look forward to launching numerous exciting initiatives as a part of National Skills Week. Watch this space.....
I would like to invite you to join this very exciting initiative. The ‘green economy’ will require both new skilled occupations and skills development in traditional occupations. The ‘green economy’ will grow through the creation and expansion of innovative organisations that offer solutions based on new cultures, new skill sets, and efficient technologies.
There are three drivers for this innovation: global warming and measures to address climate change - decarbonisation of the economy; customer demand for products and services that minimise their environmental footprint - supply chain solutions for mitigating risk and enhancing reputational value and; the need to restore and rehabilitate environmental mistakes of the past. These drivers will give rise to real employment opportunities.
