GLA Green Skills - Borough Survey 2020

GLA Green Skills - Borough Survey 2020

The Greater London Authority is looking into developing the skills training offer in green industries in the capital. As part of the Mayor of London’s ambition to promote a ‘green recovery’, the GLA is engaging with businesses, skills providers and boroughs to understand the specific skills, accreditations, entry pathways and training courses needed. 
The responses from this survey will feed into a scoping exercise the GLA is currently undertaking with the view to improve development of green skills that support employers, training providers and Londoners to grow green sectors in the capital.

If you would like more information, please do email Anna Cooban, Policy Officer for green skills at the GLA (
The deadline for responses to this survey is Friday 6th November

Definition of ‘green’: the GLA uses the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) framework (link) for Low Carbon and Environmental Goods and Services (LCEGS) to define ‘green’. This framework comprises three Level 1 sectors and 24 underlying sub-sectors:
  1. Low Carbon (additional energy sources, alternative fuel vehicle, alternative fuels, building technologies, carbon capture and storage, carbon finance, energy management, nuclear power)
  2. Environmental (air pollution, contaminated land reclamation and remediation, environmental consultancy and related services, environmental monitoring instrumentation and analysis, marine pollution control, noise and vibration control, recovery and recycling, waste management, water and waste water treatment).
  3. Renewable Energy (wind, geothermal, photovoltaic, biomass, hydro, renewable consultancy, wave and tidal)
(1) Enhance green spaces and resilience: urban greening, Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS), parks management, horticulture, arboriculture, ecology

(2) Designing, building and maintaining active travel infrastructure.
This is not included within the LCEGS framework but is an important sector within London’s low-carbon economy.
