This project was fully funded by the West of England’s Skills for Life Bootcamp.
Skills Bootcamps offer free flexible courses up to 16 weeks, giving people the opportunity to build up sector-specific skills and fast track or launch their career in retrofit. They are designed to ensure adults are able to retrain and upskill whatever their starting point, providing clear line of site to a new role, opportunity or contract.
As long as you are over 19 and live or work in areas offering Bootcamps you will be eligible. That includes unemployed, employed and self-employed. The bootcamps are flexible and will involve online guided learning designed to work around your schedule, workshops and assignments.
Retrofit Coordinators manage the PAS 2035 process throughout a project. Crucially, the Retrofit Coordinator ensures compliance with the procurement, specification, and delivery of measures in all domestic retrofit projects.
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.
The Retrofit Academy is working together with the New Anglia Combined Authority to deliver multiple Retrofit career development opportunities across Norfolk and Suffolk. The new programme of courses is fully funded by the UK Government and is here to deliver leading-edge retrofit training and qualifications to help both teams and individuals prepare as demand for energy efficiency in residences increases.
