To ask the Scottish Government, in relation to the Green Jobs Workforce Academy, what the annual budget of the Academy is; how many full-time equivalent teachers and lecturers are employed by the Academy; what the entry requirements are for the Academy; what accredited courses are available, and how many full-time students are enrolled in the Academy.

Answer

The Green Jobs Workforce Academy is administered by Skills Development Scotland (SDS) and is designed to help workers identify and access skills support and training they need to secure green job opportunities as they emerge.

While the Academy does not directly employ teachers or lecturers, individuals can access training courses across a number of sectors including construction, energy, and land use and agriculture, via the greenjobs.scot website, and can arrange to speak with SDS career advisors.
