Why become a Training Partner with the Retrofit Academy?

The Retrofit Academy has led the way in retrofit training for several years and has gone on to develop four regulated qualifications, training retrofitters nationwide! We are widely recognised for our partnerships with local authorities and government in our mission to drive the retrofit industry forward.

Our Mission

We are dedicated to training and supporting the development of 200,000 competent retrofitters by 2030 to meet the UK Government’s net zero targets. If we are to be successful, further and higher educational sectors will need to access and train large volumes of learners quickly. This is a daunting task, and exactly why we developed the Training Partnership Licence to help support institutions to build their capabilities in retrofit without taking undue risks. 

Training Licence Options

We operate a Hub and Spoke model:
Once you have secured a Training Partnership Licence and become an official Retrofit Academy Training Hub, we will not partner with anyone else in the local area that is in direct competition. However, as the franchisee, you can partner with other providers to share the cost of the licence, while increasing the reach!
