The Retrofit Academy CIC has been awarded additional funding under the Green Home Grant (GHG) Skills Training Competition to train an additional 138 Retrofit Coordinators by 30th September 2021.
What is it?
The competition aims to support government schemes such as the Local Authority Delivery Phase 2 (LAD 2), Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund (SHDF) and Energy Company Obligation (ECO). These projects will need fully-qualified Retrofit Coordinators to deliver work in compliance with PAS 2035. This funding will provide the training and ongoing support these individuals need to start acting as Retrofit Coordinator.
The funding will cover 100% of the course fees and membership of The Retrofit Academy Centre of Excellence for 12 months.
Who can apply?
Applicants MUST meet all of the following course eligibility criteria:
- You must hold a minimum of 12 Level 3 credits in a built environment subject.

- You must have the professional skills and behaviours of a built environment professional (e.g. experience of project management, customer care, contract management, managing tender processes, etc.)
- You must live in England, Wales or Scotland but be willing to work on projects in England.
The programme is only open to those committed to practice as a TrustMark-accredited Retrofit Coordinator once they have qualified.
Applications are now being accepted via the form below. Places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, provided applicants meet the funding and eligibility criteria described above.
Interested in retrofitting?
If you are interested in retrofitting and the energy efficiency of domestic properties, you might be interested in joining our Sustainable Smart Homes Special Interest Group (SIG).
This SIG group, chaired by Peter Bates, primarily looks at the UK market and its 27 million homes, many of which will require deep retrofitting and installation of renewable energy services, in order for the UK to meet it’s legal Zero Carbon targets by 2050. More information here.
