GREEN DEAL


Green deal

GREEN DEAL

  • A Collaborative Approach to the Green Deal and the Low Carbon Agenda

  • Range of measures, such as insulation, heating or lighting, to be installed in people’s homes and businesses at no upfront cost

  • Green Deal is based on the principle that some energy efficiency related changes to properties pay for themselves

  • 14 million of the UK's 27 million homes expected to benefit. It also predicts that it will create 100,000 jobs by 2015

  • Energy saving measures recommended for properties will need to be both appropriate to the construction of the property and correctly installed

  • A competent property assessment and installation workforce is therefore essential

  • A common Code of Practice (CoP)


Green deal key principles

Green Deal – key principles

Market driven approach with parameters set by Government

Entitlement to accredited advice – with recommendations on energy efficiency improvements

Agreement to package of measures that pays for itself over time – ‘Golden Rule’

Accredited products and installation

Support for poorer households and certain installations through links with ECO

Skills and Green Deal

Phil Stott


Low carbon a lead in to the green deal roger stone obe 01 mar 12

The Green Deal Skills Alliance (GDSA)

  • 3 Sector Skills Councils (SSCs) working together to ensure the correct skills are in place for the Green Deal:

  • Asset Skills – Green Deal Assessment/Advice.

  • ConstructionSkills – Green Deal Installers, covering insulation and building fabric.

  • SummitSkills – Green Deal Installers, covering environmental technologies and building engineering services.


Low carbon a lead in to the green deal roger stone obe 01 mar 12

Starting Point: Consumer Support

  • To achieve maximum impact, the emerging Green Deal brand must enjoy real consumer confidence – which in turn will trigger the market mechanisms on which Green Deal Depends.

  • Consumer confidence will only be gained through quality service – from Green Deal Advisors and Green Deal Installers.


Low carbon a lead in to the green deal roger stone obe 01 mar 12

Quality Service depends on Skills

  • Green Deal Advisors will need to be trained, qualified and certificated, and adhere to the Green Deal code of Conduct.

  • Installers and workers in environmental technologies will have the same requirements, albeit within a separate Quality Assurance, and regulatory regime based on the PAS (Publicly Available Specification).


Low carbon a lead in to the green deal roger stone obe 01 mar 12

Defining the Skills and Competencies required

National Occupational Standards (NOS) developed by individual Sector Skills Councils, define occupation specific Green Deal skills requirements.

Some existing NOS were already fit for purpose, others subject to review/amendment.

All, when approved, are being used as the basis of nationally recognised qualifications on which, certification arrangements will be based.


Low carbon a lead in to the green deal roger stone obe 01 mar 12

Asset Skills –

Energy Assessment and Advice

NOS for Domestic Energy Assessors (DEAs) have been revised to reflect the needs of the new Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) from April 1st 2012 – and used as the basis for a compulsory mini qualification.

Brand new NOS for Green Deal Advisors, Domestic and Non-Domestic, also completed in readiness for new qualifications for this brand new job role.

CITB-ConstructionSkills

CITB-ConstructionSkills is the Industrial Training Board and Sector Skills Council for construction and it is:

Providing a voice for industry on skills/training requirements relating to Green Deal.

Supporting construction trades in Green Deal, e.g. insulation installers, building professionals and general builders.

Developing bespoke apprenticeships and training solutions for specialist sectors such as solid wall insulation.


Low carbon a lead in to the green deal roger stone obe 01 mar 12

  • SummitSkills

  • Sector Skills Council for building services engineering.

  • Employer led influence on policy and standards, e.g. Microgeneration Certification Scheme.

  • Environmental technologies in Green Deal, e.g. Heat Pumps, Solar Thermal and Biomass.

  • Established National Skills Academy for Environmental Technologies in 2011.


Low carbon a lead in to the green deal roger stone obe 01 mar 12

GDSA – starting with a Common Competency Framework

Providing knowledge and understanding of Green Deal as a whole.

Everyone appreciating the “big picture” rather than thinking in individual occupation specific silos.

Workers understanding one another’s roles and where they fit into the Green Deal customer/ client “journey”.

Result: greater coherence in delivering Green Deal and enhanced success rates.


Low carbon a lead in to the green deal roger stone obe 01 mar 12

Joining up Green Deal Skills

  • Common Units of knowledge for use as the basis for additional training and enhancements to job specific qualifications or

  • Stand alone mini-qualifications in their own right.


Low carbon a lead in to the green deal roger stone obe 01 mar 12

Common units – examples

  • Understand the principles and operation of the Green Deal (or equivalent programme).

  • Understand the principles of customer service.

  • Understand how to monitor work progress.

  • Understand maintenance of energy efficiency measures.

  • Understand the effects of energy efficiency measures on conservation and heritage buildings.

  • Understand insulation and building treatment roles.

  • Understand air quality/ventilation requirements.

  • Understand building services engineering roles.


Low carbon a lead in to the green deal roger stone obe 01 mar 12

Beyond the common units

  • Research: first report from employers by February/March – encompassing demand for Green Deal skills and qualifications, delivery issues and emerging business models.

  • Train the Trainer packs for Installers and Green Deal Advisors– installer manual available now on Cutting the Carbon website; advisor manual available March 2012.

  • Piloting aspects of the Common Competency Framework to inform future work – pilots complete and feedback was excellent!

  • Disseminating information and consulting widely (e.g. 19 half-day events around the UK).


Low carbon a lead in to the green deal roger stone obe 01 mar 12

Phase two

(April 2012 to March 2014)

  • Funding secured from the UKCES“Employer Investment Fund”.

  • Focus – piloting new/emerging qualifications and then moving onto implementation issues, plus work with DECC and the devolved administrations to monitor the roll-out of Green Deal training and qualifications.


Low carbon a lead in to the green deal roger stone obe 01 mar 12

Phase two continued

Individual project details still being finalised but include:

Research

Training trainers

Quality of learning

New competencies to fill gaps

More events (but to differing models) – partners welcome contact Phil Stott.

Listening and engagement

Summary

Individual SSC work vital on an occupation specific basis.

GDSA input gives an added dimension.

Important to ensure that training and qualifications integrate with the emerging (UKCAS supervised) regulatory regimes.

All the answers NOT yet known; your feedback and questions today will help provide some of these!
