Rishi Sunak visiting GTEC in April to discuss the programme of renewables product training available to installers

In early April, Rishi Sunak visited Grant UK’s Training Academy partner, GTEC, in Hawes, North Yorkshire to discuss low carbon heating and the delivery of renewables product training to heating engineers and installers.

Rishi Sunak, MP for Richmond (Yorks), recently visited Grant UK’s Training Academy partner, GTEC, in Hawes, North Yorkshire. While at the training centre, Rishi met with candidates to find out how training was helping them and reviewed the range of renewable technologies available at the centre, including Grant Aerona³ heat pumps as pictured above.

At the end of last year, GTEC won a bid to provide heavily discounted training and certification to individuals and companies looking to upskill into heat-based renewables, backed by The Department of Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) through Midlands Energy Hub (MEH).

Named the Renewable Heat Installer Training & Support Scheme (RHITSS), the scheme offers vouchers which provide up to 70% off the cost of becoming a renewables installer. There are currently 1,000 training places and 150 businesses signed-up to RHITSS – spaces that were filled within 10 days of the scheme's launch.
