Success for Low Carbon contract delivered in Merseyside

Nationwide Energy Training Services in partnership with Wirral Met College have successfully delivered a low carbon training initiative in Merseyside and Halton. Over 400 learners have accessed training and gained qualifications ranging from Improving energy efficiency through to fully certified domestic energy assessors, all as a result of the programme that started in January 2015.

Skills Consultants helped to secure the contract for NETS as their first venture in delivering programmes using government funding.

“This has been an exciting journey for us” says Paul Siwiak, Managing Director of NETS, “When we first started this journey we knew we could deliver the right training and skills to support the local communities but didn’t know where to start when accessing government funding.  This is where Skills Consultants came in. They helped us with our ROTO application, negotiated and secured our contract with Wirral Met College and provided on-going support to deliver and manage the contract to a successful conclusion”. Paul adds “We now have our first funded contract delivered with 95% of our learners achieving qualifications and a strong relationship with a great delivery partner in Wirral Met College. We are looking forward to the next round of ESF funding to enable us to continue to support communities and the low carbon agenda. We are also looking at how we can widen our offer to support many more individuals up skill and realise their aspirations.”
