Deliver a skills development strategy to capitalise on new and emerging opportunities associated with low carbon economies
The transition to a low carbon economy is a challenging process that requires consideration of a number factors, including the availability of workers who are skilled in the necessary areas. As technologies continue to evolve to enable the transition of traditional industries and the commencement of new green industries, workforces need to be able to respond and adapt. Part of the challenge in meeting workforce demand is about understanding what type of skills will be necessary now and in the future, and what types of skills from the jobs existing today are transferable to the jobs of tomorrow, and what sort of timeframes are likely before demand for certain skill sets outstrip supply. This action will support green and low carbon industries and provides a plan to facilitate the increased availability of a skilled workforce that can participate and contribute in the growth of these industries.
