The 'Green Team' will help shape the future
Local Community Proposals to the Borough to set up a green training scheme for local Schools is receiving favourable consideration and Docklands businesses have expressed their strong support.
The scheme would offer exciting job opportunities in the environment by co-ordinating a green training program for young people still at school, it could begin the year before they leave school. and develop into a Borough wide apprenticeship offering prospects of a well paid job once the youngsters are fully trained and qualified in environment practice.
A green logo (as above) embroidered on a special T-Shirt, would be awarded with a Certificate showing the required qualification standard had been reached and that they were now ready to carry out work of a high standard for the Borough.
Growing public demand to go green is creating top job opportunities for young people, it offers them a chance to be part of the Borough's own environmental work force and ethical program, the green scheme will be linked to school leavers immediately offering them training and secure jobs as local Boroughs plan ahead for a sustainable future. The newly qualified 'green team' could eventually replace today's out moded and costly practices.
By training their own skilled local work force and providing jobs for School leavers, local Boroughs will be taking young people off the streets and can, not only benefit economically, but also tackle the scourge of ASBO head on, it doesn't take much imagination to see the advantages of such a scheme.
Exciting green job prospects for school-leavers will help to channel that often rebellious nature of youth to a rewarding and constructive future, giving youngsters a real chance to express themselves in decent jobs straight from school. Taking them off the streets can save huge costs on anti-social behaviour and prepare them to help build a sustainable future.
