Creating opportunities for our community within the emerging green economy

Shooters Hill Sixth Form college is proud to be leading the charge in to our greener future.
We have a variety of green skills pathways, each dedicated to giving our learners the best opportunity to shape a greener world and become forerunners in our emerging green economy. 

In 2020, UK government announced a £12 billion “Ten Point Plan” to lead a “Green Industrial Revolution”.

This plan aims to mobilise £42 billion of private investment by 2030 with the aim of reducing UK emissions by 180 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent between 2023 and 2032
