South Bristol Green Futures Collaborative Programme

The pilot Green Futures programme, funded by the West of England Combined Authority (WECA), ran from June 2022 to April 2023 with 60 young people; they started in year 9 and continue through the early part of their year 10 studies. This year there are 95 participants; the programme includes skills building activities, employer interactions, and a university campus visit, all with a focus on green skills, jobs and industries.

Green focused collaborative projects

Central to the programme, students will be asked to undertake a ‘green’ focused collaborative project set by the business partners, who will support students with relevant experience, insight and guidance. The projects will be presented by students in a showcase to peers and school staff describing their learning from their work experience.
