Green Home Grant
In December Hampshire Training & Assessment Ltd took part in the bid for the Green Homes Grant Skills Training Competition (GHGSTC). We are pleased to announce that we were successful, and part of the 18 organisations who are now able to offer funded courses.
What is the Green Homes Grant Skills Training Competition?
- The GHGSTC is a government funded Scheme to help strengthen and build the low carbon heating and energy efficiency sector further.
- The aim of the Scheme is to award grant funding to a range of suppliers like ourselves, so we can deliver accredited training towards the Green home Grant Scheme and get more qualified and improved Contractors installing and improving homes.
- If you would like to know more on the Scheme, please find the GOV website https://www.gov.uk/guidance/apply-for-the-green-homes-grant-scheme .
Our offering within the Green Homes Grant Skills Training Competition.
Our bid included qualifications within Work Package 5 covering training and assessments in Heating and hot water controls. Our offering includes being awarded the following qualifications on successful completion of the course/s;
- Essential Electrics and Safe Isolation of Electrical Equipment certified as a CPD qualification by LCL Awards.
- LCL Awards Level 3 Award in Energy Efficiency for Gas fired and Oil-Fired Domestic Heating and Hot Water Systems
- Hot Water Systems & Safety (covering both vented and unvented hot water systems) certified by LCL Awards.
The Green Homes Grant Training Skills funding fund 70% of our course cost, to enable candidates to complete the qualifications at a lower cost. However, after much deliberation we at Hampshire Training and Assessments Ltd have decided to waver the final 30% fee, meaning the qualifications listed above are available fully funded within this grant. *Limited availability applies.
The delivery of these courses
These qualifications listed are available both for in centre training sessions and distance learning home study. On enquiry into completing one or all of these qualifications our team will discuss suitability with you to ensure you are enrolled onto the most effective learning style for your needs. Our distance learning home study option is available for immediate start, via our e-learning platform; within centre availability from the 22nd of February.
Our certification body, LCL Awards are in the process of preparing our assessments to be available remotely so we can offer a fully remote training and assessment experience.
How does Covid-19 affect these qualifications?
Due to the current Covid-19 Government restrictions our training centre is remaining closed to candidate interactions until the 22nd of February. All of our qualification’s theory elements are being completed from the comfort of our candidate’s homes via our e-learning platform. Our staff are working daily in our centre and are available for Zoom calls, technical discussions and marking of completed workbooks and training materials.
We will be reopening our centre as soon as the risk level has lowered with all assessments completed as a priority for any assessments that cannot be completed remotely.
If you would like to enrol onto one of the qualifications listed above, you can do so by contacting us through email, Facebook messenger or by calling. We will need to obtain some personal details for yourself including your full name, date of birth, national insurance number, postal address, and company details if applicable. These details will be used for registrations for assessments and provided to our training team to enable access to our e-learning platform if required.
An initial discussion will be held to ensure the suitability of the qualification and then enrolment is completed. Upon enrolment you will receive a booking confirmation, terms and conditions and covid-19 information letter. Followed by your training materials to commence the qualification via our e-learning platform, accompanied by a welcome introduction email from our training team.
We look forward to aiding the GHGSTC project and enabling many engineers/companies the opportunity to qualify their engineers in additional qualifications fully funded.
