The government introduced an amendment to the Skills and Post-16 Education Bill which ensures that skills required in relation to jobs that support compliance with the UK net zero emissions target are considered in the development of Local Skills Improvement Plans. The Department for Education will work closely with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy as we develop statutory guidance on this to ensure we have the right skills to meet the requirements of the net zero transition.
