Green skills crisis addressed by CABE Space

Consultation on CABE Space's draft national strategy to reverse the green space skills crisis ends today (12 November).

The draft Skills to Grow strategy highlights the urgent need to tackle the decline in green space skills in order to prevent downwardly spiralling standards.

 More than 140 people have responded to the draft strategy so far, said CABE Space head of public space management and best practice Nicole Collomb.

 The responses will inform a detailed action plan that is to be produced in the spring.

 The draft Skills to Grow strategy sets out seven priorities for improving skills:

  •  Increase awareness of the sector and opportunities it offers
  • Improve entry routes and career paths
  • Improve the availability and quality of training, including continuous professional development
  • Improve management and leadership skills
  • Increase the sector's overall investment in skills
  • Build capacity for joined-up thinking and working
  • Develop and maintain a strong evidence base
