The renewable energy sector is expanding rapidly with the UK’s commitment to reduce carbon emissions and our reliance on fossil fuels. Billions of pounds are being invested into the sector and there are exciting opportunities for skilled workers to meet the growing demand.
This course will give you an introduction and an understanding of renewable energy technologies, how they work and what skills are required in the industry along with an overview of the growth of the market employment opportunities.
The course will cover:
Introduction to renewable energy
- what is renewable energy?
- energy sources
- enhance your skills required for the working environment
- develop confidence and motivation for employment
- improve communication skills and personal effectiveness
Understanding domestic retrofit
- Provide you with an overview of information used, the health and safety considerations, the resources used, the risks of damage, contractual requirements and the processes involved as part of retrofit activities.
- this will give you a unique insight into how the industry operates and what is expected of individuals operating within the net zero and low carbon industries.
No previous experience is required, just an interest in renewable energy and the opportunities it brings.
The course will include a mixture of practical activities and presentations to involve everyone and provide a relevant and engaging learning experience there will be question and answer sessions throughout and the course will draw upon any previous knowledge and experience you may have. There will be on-going assessment throughout the course.
There is a huge UK skills gap and a shortage of labour within this sector. There are many new and emerging job roles within the retrofit and renewable energy/net zero industries. Progression from this pathway could be on to a further course of study, an apprenticeship or in to one of the many job roles highlighted on the career opportunities map.
