Want to learn new skills to start a low carbon career in the natural environment?

We’re working with Groundwork GM to run a face-to-face four week training programme, including an optional two week work placement.

Groundwork is an environmental organisation that delivers employability programmes. With them, we’re delivering a programme for unemployed Guinness customers in Manchester, aged 18+ to support training and skills in low carbon careers to hopefully lead towards a job in that sector.

How does it work?

The programme will involve classroom and practical learning as well as professional accreditation (e.g. Health and Safety, CSCS card). The Low Carbon Careers course is focused on the Natural Environment and has been developed to help young people to progress into roles such as: landscaping, fencing, outdoor construction (i.e. bricklaying, grounds maintenance), conservation or agriculture.


In addition, participants will receive 2 weeks of relevant sector work experience, coupled with employability support to help them progress into employment.

Once in employment, participants will be provided with mentoring support over a further 3 months to support retention and progression within their new role.

Who is eligible?

To get involved in the training programme you need to:

  • Be aged 18+
  • Be unemployed
  • Be a Guinness customer
