Gen Green 3, 2013

The Gen Green 3 study, a partnership between La Trobe University and WorldSkills Australia captured apprentices’ and trainees’ experiences of skills and sustainability in workplaces and courses in 2012, building on the Gen Green 2008 and 2010 surveys. The research indicated a step change in apprentices’ and trainees’ experience of skills for sustainability in work and training between 2008 and 2010, but only minor changes in the experience of these skills at work and  in training from 2010 to 2013. Cost was consistently indicated as the most widely experienced barrier to practicing these skills at work and the main driver for gaining these skills was a personal interesting sustainability, an interest that remained consistently high over the three surveys.
