Green construction on training agenda

Green construction on training agenda
Low carbon building techniques will be taught and developed by two leading academic institutions after demand for training in the area.

The UK Green Building Council (UK-GBC) has chosen the University of Cambridge and the College for Estate Management (CEM) to deliver the leadership and skills courses.

UK-GBC will help devise the training, a key part of its new Sustainability Training and Education Programme (STEP) programme for professionals, senior management and construction workers.

The University of Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership (CPSL) run with the consultancy WSP will have 90 places, whilst the green skills course run by CEM has 12,500 places in 2010.

According to UK-GBC, the two-day residential CPSL may eventually be adapted for use by corporations.

Deputy director of the CPSL Mike Pierce said he hopes the programme will create "a community of leaders who possess a common language, capacity and determination to work together for change".
