The rollout of the Government’s home energy-efficiency scheme – the Green Deal - is fast approaching. Installing insulation to millions of draughty, energy-inefficient homes and office buildings across the UK will require an estimated 65,000 workers by 2015.
Construction firms stand to gain from the commercial and employment opportunities arising from the scheme, but to do so they must have in place the skilled and accredited workforce that meets the high standards of workmanship required to participate.
ConstructionSkills invite you to an event to highlight the opportunity in the insulation sector for SME construction firms that will arise from the Government’s imminent Green Deal scheme.
The event is being hosted by CITB-ConstructionSkills, together with the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), on Monday May 21 - at the SusCon green skills training centre in Dartford. It will run between 12pm – 5.15pm followed by a drinks reception. Gregory Barker, Minister of State for Energy and Climate Change, will be the Key note speaker - speeches will commence at 2.15pm.
There will be information stalls run by trade associations (including the FMB), certification bodies, training providers and private companies providing advice to potential trainees and SME firms interested in entering the market. Workshops will also be run on Green Deal standards, and how to become certified and working with GD providers.
