Gain Green Skills with Carbon Co-op and People Powered Retrofit

by Blog

We were chuffed to talk to journalist Helen Pidd and to be featured in the Guardian newspaper highlighting our work on the development of green skills in the retrofit and construction sector.

A well developed, skilled and able supply chain is one of the key elements of a domestic retrofit market and during the R&D phase of our People Powered Retrofit service we realised there was a lack of suitable, ‘on the tools’ training for contractors wanting to get into this work.

You can read more about our findings on retrofit and green skills here.

If you are a retrofit contractor (or a contractor who would like to work in retrofit), sign up to the People Powered Retrofit network here: https://retrofit.coop/network

Over the past couple of years we’ve developed a range of courses and activities to fill this gap. If you are interested in getting involved in retrofit we have a couple of upcoming courses you may be interested in booking on to:
