The North of Tyne Combined Authority is funding the £400,000 Green Growth Skills Foresighting Project, in partnership with Newcastle University, Newcastle College, Northumberland College, EPNE and the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult.  

The research project is currently active and will engage with local industry at technology levels to provide objective evidence of green skills requirements. The results of the project will deliver:  

  • A research-informed schools engagement programme to raise awareness of future green technology career opportunities. 
  • The development and delivery of green technology sector training courses to facilitate re-skilling and up-skilling.
