FREE Basic Energy Awareness Training

We have been made aware that NEA has funding to offer some free CPD certified energy awareness training in the South East.

NEA the national energy efficiency and fuel poverty charity are offering a limited number of FREE 3-hour energy awareness training sessions to those working with low-income and vulnerable individuals who struggle to manage their energy use and/or keep their homes warm.

Courses are available to those working in both statutory and voluntary sector organisations.

The course will help trainees to become more energy aware and will equip them with the knowledge to provide basic energy advice and to signpost individuals to appropriate schemes, support and services to help them achieve a warmer, more energy efficient home.

Courses are CPD certified.
Course content:

  • Understanding fuel poverty and the impact of cold homes
  • Energy use at home
  • Getting to grips with heating and hot water systems and controls
  • Understanding fuel bills, payment methods and getting the best energy deals
  • Dealing with damp and condensation
  • Sources of other advice, schemes and services

The NEA Training Co-ordinator, Lynsey Thompson is able to offer a flexible approach to this training and how it is set up – shorter awareness workshops/drop-ins/tea and chat sessions may be possible for service users at risk or in fuel poverty areas across the South East.

If you would like further information or to check availability you can contact Lynsey Thompson at NEA directly and discuss how she can support you and your vulnerable clients.   Support is also available if you are already running events and would like an extra advisor along.

All trainees receive FREE information resources to help signpost advice recipients to available services.
