BEIS part funded retrofit training available!
You can now access funded training with the Retrofit Academy!
Through the BEIS Home Decarbonisation Skills Training Competition, we are able to offer partial funding up to 70% with match funding required based on employer headcount.
We need to retrofit 27 million homes across the UK in the next 27 years to achieve the UK Government’s net zero targets! Join the retrofit challenge and make a difference.
Helping learners understand labour market information can be tricky! It’s a dry subject, often presented using graphs and charts. At the end of summer 2022, the Black Country careers hub asked groups of young people what employers, sectors and jobs they knew about that were on their doorstep.
They were unable to speak with any real knowledge, this was despite many of the schools achieving 100% on the labour market Gatsby Benchmark, obviously this information is not being digested and recall of information is poor.
Why Retrofit Career Development?
The Retrofit Academy is an industry-leading not-for-profit organisation, central to delivering training and support to the next generation of retrofit professionals in the UK.
Our vision is a world where every home is warm, healthy and low carbon. To create the efficient homes required to meet the UK’s emissions goals, the country needs an army of retrofitters in professional, technical and skilled craft roles. And that’s where we come in!
