Helping Government Tackle the Retrofit Skills Gap

We work with central, regional and local government to build the workforce needed for housing decarbonisation. Our qualifications form the backbone of the UK’s retrofit curriculum.

Supporting Government

The Retrofit Academy’s primary focus is on social housing and local authority-led retrofit programmes. These include the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund (SHDF), and the Home Upgrade Grant (HUG), which are schemes that have the principles of PAS 2035 at their hearts.

The Retrofit Academy works with government agencies nationwide through:


We deploy government-funded initiatives, such as Skills Bootcamps, to upskill the industry


We work with local authorities to build a retrofit supply chain and labour force locally to capture social value


We manage and deliver large-scale skills programmes to benefit local communities
