How We Work with
Education Providers

The educational sector has not kept pace with employer demand for retrofit skills – and it’s not surprising as the barriers to entry are significant and oftentimes, unclear.

Becoming a Retrofit Academy Hub brings FE and HE institutions a fast-track, low-risk route to offering a comprehensive retrofit curriculum. It also addresses many of the practical barriers that stand in the way, including tutor and assessor availability, lack of employer demand, and a shortfall in appropriate training materials.
