Global Action Plan, British Gas and Accenture launch Transform, an innovative collaboration to help young people into green jobs.
Global Action Plan, British Gas and Accenture are launching an ambitious, collaborative partnership to create 1,000 green jobs for young unemployed people.
What is Transform?
Transform is a groundbreaking collaboration between British Gas, Accenture, JobCentre Plus and Global Action Plan to provide training, skills development and full-time jobs to 1,000 young unemployed people by 2015.
It supports British Gas in delivering residential energy efficiency retrofits across the UK, helping some of the most vulnerable communities to reduce their carbon footprint, energy bills and help them out of fuel poverty.
Young people into green jobs
Global Action Plan recruits young unemployed people from communities where the retrofits are taking place and delivers a 5-day accredited training programme in sustainability. Each person who completes the course receives a BTEC qualification, a UNEP certificate, and is guaranteed an interview with British Gas for a full-time job.
