GREEN SKILLS & EMPLOYABILITY

Looking for structured sustainability-focused education and skills training?

Explore our one-off sessions in green skills and employability to enhance the learning journey of your students at college or university. 

To build a regenerative future, where people and the rest of nature can thrive together, we need to think outside the box.

In this workshop, we’ll have fun developing and practising key skills for sustainability such as systems thinking, creativity and collaborative problem-solving.

Sustainability is no longer a niche subject; it is critical to the survival and future success of every sector. Engage students from all disciplines with an interest in forging their career in sustainability or looking to embed sustainability into any role. This workshop will look at the skills employers want, bring sustainability and the sustainable development goals to life and look at how to approach finding a career, with CV writing tips and Interview Skills. Available as a student-focused workshop or a 'train the trainer' style workshop for your careers team.

Learning vital transferable skills in communication, presentation and networking.

In this workshop we blend teaching of effective techniques with promotion of peer led discussion and the sharing of knowledge and best practice. We give each participant the opportunity to practice their communication skills in a supportive environment and build their confidence.

Using core values as the foundation, we take participants through the step by step process of creating a tangible plan to understand and unlock their career goals.

When applying for jobs, the golden rule is quality over quantity. Having a career plan provides a reference point to filter job descriptions against and ascertain where to focus time and energy. This results in a higher quality application and increases the chance of successfully securing a meaningful role.

“When it came to helping our students to understand how to prepare themselves for a career in sustainability, Megan from Change Agents’ presentation was awe-inspiring.   Not only did she provide a lot of factual information, she delivered it in an interactive and engaging way, which made it easy to absorb. The structure was clear, motivational and effective. They had obviously put a lot of thought and expertise into the content of the presentation, and because of this our students have taken away a very key message - ‘sustainability starts where you are'.”
