Workforce Training: Credentials, Pathways and Pipelines to the Green Economy

This is a link to presentations from a workshop given at the “Good Jobs, Green Jobs” National Conference in Washington, DC, in February 2009. Building a green country requires building a skilled workforce. What does that look like in practice? Developing skills standards for green-collar jobs will benefit workers, employers and consumers alike. For workers, a credential provides mobility and bargaining power, and thus higher wages, in the labor market. For employers, it provides assurance that job applicants meet necessary skill standards. And for consumers, it provides critical information for contracting decisions. This panel addresses successes and challenges for certification and training in the emerging clean-energy economy, where most workers will need more than a high-school diploma, but less than a 4-year degree.


Workforce Trends & Needs in Green Sectors

*NOTE*  Because of the way this website is set up, there is no direct link to this report.  The link above takes you to a search bar and you must type “Workforce Trends & Needs in Green Sectors” into the bar to find the report.

Presented at the CCCAOE Fall 2011 Conference, this presentation incorporates data from solar and water studies. Also explored were results of a year-long examination of “green jobs” conducted in partnership with the EDD’s Labor Market Information Division (LMID), which focused on identifying the impact of “green” in creating new tasks, skills, and knowledge areas for today’s workforce. Economic & Workforce Development assistance was provided through the California Community Colleges and the presentation works to inform community colleges and the workforce community. It covers the industries that are driving growth in “green” employment and what “green” skills and knowledge employers are looking for. It provides a summary on where community colleges should invest resources and can be seen as an example of what regions can do to engage educational and employer institutions.
