These ‘green’ apprenticeships have great sustainability credentials
Six ‘green’ apprenticeships that will receive the Coronation emblem in recognition of their sustainability credentials could be of interest to anyone with a keen interest in the climate and environment.
They will be marked with the emblem, released to coincide with the coronation of King Charles III and in recognition of his love of the natural world, after being selected from a shortlist of 200 apprenticeships.
The apprenticeships dubbed ‘green’ have been shown to be vital organisational roles that would help to boost the green industry and support economic growth.
