As the UK responds to the threat posed by climate change, the world of work is predicted to change significantly.  

Almost all sectors and professions are working to become more sustainable in order to help the UK meet its ‘net zero’ targets.   

This will have a big impact on the jobs market that students will enter when they leave education – affecting the types of jobs that are available, and the skills they require.   

Understanding these changes can help you to equip students for the jobs of the future and build their core transferable skills. 

The shift towards sustainability is also a great opportunity to engage students around careers. We know students today are strongly motivated by tackling climate change and building a better world. 

Our sustainable skills podcast features a panel of leading experts discussing trends in the labour market, current skills gaps, and opportunities for students.  

It’s hosted by Stacey Drake, an experienced Careers Leader, who sets out to get under the skin of ‘green jobs’, cut through the noise, and share practical tips for what the big trends mean in the classroom. 

Meet the panellists: 

  • Stacey Drake – Careers and Employability Leader, Daventry Hill School 
  • Neil Carberry – CEO of Recruitment and Employment Confederation 
  • Helen Janota - Labour market and careers information consultant 
  • Matt Larsen-Daw - Head of Education, WWF-UK 
  • Olly Newton - Executive Director, Edge Foundation
