Green Homes Grant Skills Training Competition

Green Homes Grant Skills Training Competition is designed to provide support to the energy efficiency and low carbon heating supply chains to deliver works under the Green Homes Grant scheme, and to scale up to meet the additional consumer demand generated. 

The competition will make available a maximum of £1m for each competition project, subject to state aid restrictions.

Successful projects will be expected to achieve one or more of the following:

  • Installation training to National Occupational Standards or higher as appropriate, resulting in either a formal qualification for the trainee (where available) or other demonstration of competence

  • Support and training for existing installation companies to gain required PAS 2030: 2017 and/or PAS 2030: 2019 certification, including possible contribution to certification costs

  • Support to gain TrustMark registration and/or MCS certification, including possible contribution to certification costs

  • Training in the installation of one or more individual energy efficiency and/ or low carbon heating measures supported by the voucher scheme, including training for individuals with existing construction skills, and training for those new to the sector

  • Training in wider whole house retrofit knowledge and awareness (covering wider issues such as building physics, moisture, ventilation, cold-bridging etc)

  • Support for training in retrofit assessor and retrofit coordinator skills to PAS 2035 standard, leading to the relevant qualification
