/ News / Skills Survey regarding Net Zero with the Work Foundation

The Work Foundation is collaborating with the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership (LEP) to explore the skills needs of Lancashire businesses engaged in the net-zero transition through an employer survey and a focus group.   

The objective is to generate up-to-date evidence on how the local skills system can best support employers in adapting to the net-zero transition. This will inform the skills and employment strategy for the Energy and Low Carbon sector, as well as wider sector groups, and outline the interventions needed to support the net zero ambition. The Work Foundation at Lancaster University (in collaboration with the independent research agency Blue Marble Research) are interested in engaging businesses who would classify themselves as part of the Energy and Low Carbon sector, and also businesses whose work will need to adapt and embrace net zero technologies and skills, this would include businesses in construction, manufacturing and digital.  

Businesses are being invited to complete the survey as relevant and/or also support the dissemination of the survey link to their business networks https://websurveys.facefactsresearch.com/WebProd/Start/W6080_Lancashire_Businesses

The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete, and respondents will be entered into a prize draw to win one of four new iPads (10.2”). The deadline for responses is 31st March.

If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Mel Wilkes at the Work Foundation (m.wilkes@lancaster.ac.uk) or Laura Weston at Blue Marble Research (laura@bluemarbleresearch.co.uk).
