A new national forum established to improve renewable heat skills and training has met for the first time to agree actions and priorities.

The Renewable Energy Skills Forum includes government, SummitSkills, the MCS, installers, qualifications regulators and representatives from colleges and training providers. At its first meeting, hosted by Ofgem at its Millbank offices in London, the group mapped out its key activities for the next 12 months.

Nigel Hollett, general manager of SummitSkills and chair of the forum, said: “With over 20 organisations represented at our first meeting, it was great to see the level of interest and commitment in creating a forum that can deliver real outcomes for enhancing renewable heat training.

“We’ll shortly be launching our work plan and key milestones and look forward to announcing our first successes very soon.”
