We have started assessing the demand for green skills in London in response to the need to transition to a low carbon circular economy and be able to deliver my proposed Green New Deal. This work includes planned analysis by GLA Economics and will also be informed by responses to the current Skills for Londoners Framework consultation. In this consultation, I have asked providers to respond on how they are embedding green skills in their provision and supporting their staff to deliver these skills. This work will help inform the development of my Adult Education Budget and how it is deployed as well as my proposed Green New Deal.
