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 skills gap in the construction and allied industries, the risk of insufficient numbers of skilled, experienced, and competent people, trained in delivering high-quality retrofit is too great to ignore.
“The Retrofit Academy are an integral and essential part of the retrofitting industry and their network which we are proud to be part of, is helping to improve levels of awareness, behaviours and skills that are currently lacking at the scale required.
The Retrofit Academy Network allows us to leverage significant experience and knowledge that is being brought together within the fast-evolving retrofit space and that brings opportunities to collaborate and innovate that we have not seen on this level before. “
“The Retrofit Academy Network is integral in making sure projects are completed to the highest retrofit standards.
Osborne Carbon Neutral Solutions team is very excited to see the innovative development of new technologies to help ensure residents have affordable, warm, safe and secure homes to raise their families and the knowledge sharing and depth of industry knowledge that is available through the Network is invaluable to understanding best practice for these innovations and new technologies.“
“We fully support TRA in their work in building a trained retrofit workforce of the future. As a company that delivers multi-million pound contracts for some of the country’s largest and most demanding housing associations and local authorities it is important we can continue to build on our workforce of fully trained and competent people, who understand retrofitting and can work under PAS 2035 and PAS 2030 (2019) to the high quality standards Sustainable Building Services (UK) Ltd are currently delivering on a large scale.“
