Training for thousands to take advantage of green job opportunities

Last week the government Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy announced the news that a number of training organisations across England have been awarded funding to deliver accredited training programmes to boost numbers of skilled retrofit, energy efficiency and heat pump installers.

The courses will be free or heavily subsidised and will provide retraining opportunities for people already working or looking to start roles in the green energy sector.

The funding will see training providers deliver 8,900 courses at accredited centres for prospective heat pump and energy efficiency installers, enabling thousands of installers to take advantage of growth and job potential created by clean heating and the push to reduce energy bills by improving energy efficiency in buildings.

In total around 3000 heat pumps training places will be offered to upskill engineers to install heat pumps, with the Government having a target of 600,000 heat pumps installations per year by 2028, this provides a great opportunity for installers to start their heat pump installer journey.
