Daikin UK backs new scheme for unemployed installers

Daikin UK has welcomed a new Jobcentre Plus scheme to help unemployed installers back into work.
Daikin UK backs new scheme for unemployed installers
Designed in partnership with the National Skills Academy for Environmental Technologies, Supporting the Unemployed into Employment will provide out of work plumbers, heating engineers and electricians with an opportunity to learn new 'green' skills. This will make them more employable in a job market open increasingly to those trained in renewable energy systems.

Courses on offer as part of the initiative will include training in renewable and energy saving technologies such as heat pumps, solar photovoltaic and solar thermal hot water systems, which are becoming increasingly popular thanks to government schemes like the Green Deal, the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and Feed in Tariffs.

Installers who successfully complete the training will acquire skills enabling them to better help their customers meet low carbon requirements and will be given free registration on the National Skills Academy for Environmental Technologies' Register of Trained Installers.

John Durbin, manager of Daikin UK's Training Department, which has launched a new online booking system for its installer courses, said: 'This is a very positive move, which supports the type of training we offer and will help give renewed confidence and open many new doors to installers. It will also provide them with more awareness of the wealth of work opportunities now available to them under the new domestic RHI.'
