Working with employers throughout the UK

National Retrofit Employers’ Group (NREG)

The Retrofit Academy works closely with employers across the UK, to provide support in the development of PAS: 2035 retrofit roles; developing recruitment plans regionally and ensuring the suitability of candidates and learners to enhance their employment prospects. With such a  huge skill gap in the construction and allied industries, the risk of insufficient numbers of skilled, experienced, and competent people, trained and experienced in delivering high quality retrofit is too great to ignore.

Representation across the UK

The National Retrofit Employers’ Group (NREG) consists of around 30 employers from across the industry, representing all areas of the UK and ranging from medium-sized insulation and renewable energy contractors to large-scale RMI (Repairs , Maintenance, and Improvement) contractors, who are delivering quality retrofit for clients across UK.

How Retrofit works with NREG

Meeting around 3 times a year as a group, The Retrofit Academy works individually with group members throughout the year, to understand their requirements for specific retrofit roles and work with local infrastructure licence-holders and partnership agencies to ensure adequate training is in place to satisfy this demand. Knowing where the future opportunities are, allows The Retrofit Academy to ensure appropriate training is in place where and when it is required. Working closely with the employers’ group enables us to provide appropriate learners who, when qualified, will match employers’ needs, and can take up sustainable employment across the sector, optimise the opportunities for employment for learners on the retrofit roles training courses, and secure sustainable employment across the UK.

Developing skills and pathways

With c. 200,000 professional retrofit roles being needed by 2030, the close working relationship with members, ensures that the needs of retrofit employers are at the forefront of the development of professional skills training and that the experience of employers in the sector guides the development of professional career pathways in the retrofit industry, and significantly reduces the risk that Carbon reduction retrofit targets in the UK housing sector are not achieved.
