Introduction to the course

The shift to environmentally sustainable economies is changing industries, labour markets and skills needs. The skills, knowledge and competencies that workers need to find jobs and operate productively in the green economy will never be the same. But how do we anticipate the skills that workers need in changing sectors and occupations? How do we build green competency and qualification standards? How do we "green" TVET, skills development and lifelong learning? This online course strengthens the capacity of policymakers, social partners, training providers and civil society organizations, in both developed and developing countries, to understand the role of skills development policies in advancing the sustainable transition to a greener future and to formulate and implement strategies that contribute to improving the employability of women and men in emerging green industries.
