There are over 23 million gas customers in the UK who all have something in common which is they all have gas appliances that will need maintenance, repair or replacement which can only be done by Gas Safe registered engineers.
It has been highlighted in a Gas Safe decade review that there is currently an ageing workforce in the gas industry with half retiring in the next 10 years, it has now become apparent that this gap will not be met by apprenticeships alone.
There are a number of packages that the Energy Academy are able to offer and this will be down to experience and knowledge as you may be able to transfer some of your existing skills known as RPL (recognition of prior learning), this could include criteria such as manual handling or asbestos awareness for example.
