Skills Development Scotland Low Carbon Leadership Programme

ECCI has been established to influence and accelerate effective low carbon policy development and innovation within enterprise and enterprising networks.

Together with Skills Development Scotland ECCI will deliver a coordinated series of low carbon skills and executive education events designed for middle and senior managers of ‘high growth’ Scottish SMEs but will also attract other attendees from relevant organisations.

These sessions will be designed to illuminate and inform SME leaders regarding the opportunities and threats posed by Scotland’s progression to a low carbon economy. Selection, influence and qualitative re-skilling of SME leaders are essential to facilitate the full engagement of SME management and workforce within low carbon training and education.
