We’re very pleased to have taken on four local people to train as household energy assessors. At the very end of 2012 Riley from Chapeltown Development Trust and Danny from Groundwork Leeds interviewed all applicants for the post and were very impressed with Gerran, Kenan, Pete and Puru. Our aim was to find unenemployed people from Chapeltown with an interest in sustainability, a commitment to tackling fuel poverty, and a good mix of practical and communication skills. We certainly got all we were looking for!
All four will be starting training based at Groundwork Leeds in late January. They’ll be out and about in Leeds learning the best way of doing household energy assessment visits, backed up by sessions back at the office learning the theory behind it all. In February two of them will be put forward for the National Energy Action Energy Awareness course and by the end of March they’ll be qualified Household Energy Assessors.
If you want some info and advice on saving energy and reducing your fuel bills then get in touch and we’ll arrange for our friendly local energy assessors to come and visit your home.
