As demand to decarbonise homes across South London increases, the South London Partnership has launched an online hub to support the construction workforce to access training and qualifications in retrofit.

Through our research, we estimate it will take 66,000+ person years to decarbonise buildings across south London. However, with the introduction of new and developing technology, we need to make sure that the construction workforce have the skills they need to meet growing demand. But where do you start when looking for the most appropriate training?

The Retrofit Skills Centre is a one-stop-shop for retrofit training and qualifications and aims to support the goal of making 635,000 South London properties more energy efficient over the next decade.

Courses on the online hub include training in PAS 2035-identified roles, such as Retrofit Coordinator and Retrofit Assessor, as well as a range of installation NVQs and apprenticeships.

The green skills offering is part of a commitment by the South London Partnership to support London’s 2030 Net Zero targets and focusses on boosting the green jobs sector to build a strong sustainable economy across Croydon, Kingston, Merton, Richmond upon Thames, Sutton and Wandsworth.
