Green Futures Project

What is the Green Futures Project?

The Green Futures Project will support schools to align their careers activity and curriculum with the regional 'green' skills agenda. The funding will build on the three pilot projects that tested the very best approaches and practice to ensure young people are able to access future opportunities in ‘green’ jobs.

This new £300k programme is a key part of the West of England Combined Authority’s Climate Emergency Action Plan and follows on from recommendations made in the West of England Combined Authority Green Skills Reports.

Part of the Green Futures Project is an open call for funding applications to delivery key activities that align to the overarching aims of the project.

Green Futures Project

What are we aiming to achieve?

Through this funding we will identify and evaluate the most effective and impactful ways that schools can deliver careers programmes and curriculum design that:

  • More young people in the region who are interested in pursuing a ‘green’ job or pathway in the future.
  • More young people in the region who have the information and support they need to pursue a ‘green’ job or pathway in the future.
  • More young people in the region who have the “career readiness” skills to pursue a ‘green’ job or pathway in the future.

Find out more and apply

Our funding call is now closed as of Wednesday 6th March 2024. Details on delivery partners and their programmes will be updated once funding has been awarded. We hope to run further funding rounds in the future and details will be kept up to date here.
