Live actions for 2023

Net zero sector skills consultation

We are seeking views on net zero skills in Wales to build on the evidence captured in the Net zero skills action plan.

  • Our Sector wide skills consultation is now open: we are undertaking a sector wide consultation which aims to capture specific skills requirements. The consultation sets out the current skills position for each sector and builds on the findings that informed the Net Zero Skills Action Plan.
  • The window for responses will cover a three month period where all stakeholders with an interest in contributing and shaping the skills needed to support our net zero journey are asked to respond.

Proposed actions for 2023

Continue implementation phase of the plan to include:

  • Targeted support for employers
  • Awareness raising campaign and Ministerial events
  • Maintain strong links with industry and stakeholders to shape skills needs and offer

Proposed actions for 2024

  • Publish report on the outcomes of the consultation.
  • Develop and publish sector skills roadmaps.
  • Continue implementation phase.
