Project Green target achieved!

Project Green has achieved its target of creating 140 graduate apprenticeships!

Graduates have been placed across 108 different organisations throughout the West Midlands, across 11 different sectors. 77 placements were with SMEs (55%) and 63 were with larger organisations employing over 250 people. So far we have had feedback that 44 of the graduates have gone on to further work place opportunities following their internship. Feedback from companies has been very positive with reported energy and financial savings, CO2 reductions, ISO 14001 accreditations, new business opportunities, a boost to staff morale, and new perspectives gained from the graduates.

The number of low carbon internships actually totals 181 (the additional 41 have been funded through Project FIT), within 135 different organisations across the West Midlands, 97 of which are companies employing 250 people or less.
