Building Our Skills – Making Fenestration a Career of Choice has 100% funding available for practical training for window and door installers.

The 3-day course (1 day online, 2 days practical) is available to any installers who want to participate whether they are on the Green Homes Scheme, are thinking about joining it, or are simply looking to upgrade their own skills, or those of their employees.

The training is pitched at young installers with limited experience, fitter's mates getting ready to take the next step up, and others with a desire for skills training.  It is also perfect for employees who work in a technical role but work in-house and who might benefit from first-hand exposure to product installation.

The course is fully accredited - leading to a GQA Q Card - and can count towards the knowledge element for those who might want to take an NVQ in the future.

Training is at the Building Our Skills Centre in Sheffield which is fully Covid compliant, including lateral flow testing on arrival.

The funding is time limited, and all training must be complete before the end of June.

There is no cost to attendees other than transport and/or accommodation if they choose to stay over.

We are delighted to be able to offer this to the industry to benefit from the funding.  Expressions of interest can be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
