Energy efficiency training forges ahead
Pilot training courses to turn residents into energy efficiency mentors and community champions will start this October 2012.
Just Housing Residents' Academy has introduced its innovative 'Energizers'
training programme to ensure residents make the most of energy efficiency
improvements made by their landlords.
They will learn how to use less energy, how to help neighbours change their
lifestyles, and how to deliver community projects.
Four landlords – Willow Park Housing Trust, Parkway Green Housing Trust, Golden
Gates Housing Trust and PlusDane, have signed up for pilot courses.
The Residents' Academy is aiming to deliver the CIH Level 2 Award in Community
Action qualification, as part of the course.
Following completion of the pilot, JH Residents' Academy aims to roll out the course in
the New Year.
The Academy invites other landlords to become partners in the scheme.
