Executive summary
This report focuses on the changes that have taken place in Spain since 2010 as a response to the skills demanded by the labour market in relation to the greening of the economy. The economic crisis negatively affected the attention paid to greening due to general budgetary cuts; but attention is growing once again in line with the economic recovery. Whilst there is not a specific procedure for the identification of skills related to green jobs, there are general skills anticipation schemes that take into account green needs and there is a growing awareness of the importance of green and greening jobs. These skills anticipation schemes include a wide institutional set up, bringing together employment and education authorities, as well as social partners, among others. Skills identified are taken into account to define the training provision through Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) actions for employed and unemployed workers. As a consequence, several changes have been observed in training provision in line with the greening of the economy. In addition, the private sector plays an important role in the identification and provision of training in relation to greening of the economy.
