Have you thought about changing careers?
– A recent report from Gas Safe has found that the median age of registered gas engineers is 55 in the next 10 years there is going to be a severe shortage of gas engineers.
– Have you thought about a possible change in careers?
– Why not enter the Gas Industry?
– With potential earnings of around £30,000 – £40,000 for new entrants
– The Managed Learning Programme is for new entrants into the gas industry
Why the Managed Learning Programme?
The managed learning programme was designed and implemented to replace the old APL which was a quick way into the gas industry but this led to inadequately trained engineers working on gas appliances.
The MLP incorporates a much more in-depth training programme which covers health and safety as well all of the relevant gas modules.
The training programme is 4 – 5 weeks at our centre where you will be taught by our knowledgeable trainers and then you will be required to complete a portfolio with a Gas Safe Registered engineer.
What is involved in the work placement?
As part of the MLP you are required to complete a portfolio, this portfolio is completed out on site under the direct supervision of a Gas Safe Registered engineer. Energy Academy will provide you with the Logic Certification portfolio that gives you the format of how your reports should be presented.
You are required to provide evidence and write up reports of jobs that you have completed, this evidence can be in the way of witness statements and photographs that will be signed off by the supervising engineer.
What if I am unable to secure a work placement?
If you are unable to secure a supervised work placement then we at the Energy Academy will help you as we have connections with local businesses that maybe able to assist us by offering you a placement. Please note that there maybe an additional charge for this placement, this would be assessed on an individual basis.
Why should I choose the Energy Academy?
We understand the MLP is a massive investment into your future and we will be there to help you not only through the MLP but also moving forward as you progress into your gas career.
We have top trainers who will make sure that you understand everything that is being taught to you, if there are certain areas that you may be struggling in then we will take the time to work with you to go over it until you are happy.

What are the finance options?
As previously mentioned we understand that the MLP is a large investment in your future, with this in mind the Energy Academy offers different financial packages to help. This would be down to individual circumstances and requirements so please come and talk to us so that we can discuss your options.
So what next?
The first thing would be to book onto one of our open days so that you can come down look around the facilities, meet the team, learn more about the course but most importantly get any questions that you may have answered in person.
