Developing industry wide training to future proof skills in the Borders

We’re really pleased to have been able to help input into a really exciting training opportunity that will not only benefit us but other employees of social landlords and their subcontractors.

Borders College received funding through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund to help deliver free retrofit training courses. These will cover heat pumps, renewables as well as many more. This initiative is a direct response to the pressing need for upskilling to decarbonise the housing stock within our region which is a target for us all.

The college worked in collaboration with ourselves and the other Borders Housing Associations to draw up the syllabus looking at the needs of our organisations.

It’s great to have been involved in this and we now have the opportunity to put our managers and operatives from the Development Team, HIT squad and Maintenance and Repair teams through this training.
