CIEEM and Lantra research paper – Opening Up Vocational Pathways Into Nature-based Green Jobs
To address climate change and restore nature, we will need many more people with ecology skills working in the sector. Recruitment today relies on graduates and postgraduates in ecology and related subjects. This report explores one way to address the skills gap, which is to improve pathways into ecology jobs for young people with vocational qualifications and for mid-career changers.
The Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM) and Lantra commissioned this research paper and published in November 2023. The paper covers capacity and skills issues in the ecology sector and barriers to entering the profession.
