Research on Entry-Level Green Jobs Begins

 

The Green Skills Network Research Project will provide career practitioners with information regarding entry-level employment opportunities in the renewable energy and energy conservation sectors of Canada’s emerging green economy. The new project is a partnership between CERIC and the Green Skills Network.

Renewable energy and energy conservation sector jobs, which can include manufacturing, installation, distribution, and sales of energy generation and conservation methods, have experienced and will continue to experience significant job growth. The Green Skills Network Research project will advance career practitioners’ knowledge of these employment opportunities and the educational requirements and training opportunities available within this promising sector.

The project will also see the development of an evaluation framework, which will be applied to five green jobs programs. The findings of these evaluations will determine and align practices for career practitioners and centres in the design and implementation of renewable energy and conservation jobs programs.

The Green Skills Network Research Project will disseminate its findings through multiple workshops, and will distribute its research and findings to over 200 career practitioners across Canada.
