As a result of the Government's Green Deal, Norton Radstock College has come up with a range of courses and qualifications that are suitable for those working in the construction industry and looking to increase their knowledge and upskill in order to work in the sustainability sector.
Lorna Crouch, marketing manager at Norton Radstock College, said: "With energy saving, and the resulting cost savings, at the forefront of people's minds, it's more important than ever for those working in the construction industry to follow green principles.
It's not all about expensive solutions such as solar PV, but often the little things which all add up. Collectively everything can help to reduce our carbon footprint. By 2020 EU directives require a 20 per cent reduction in carbon use and by 2050 an 80 per cent reduction.
Some of these courses may also be of interest to the DIY enthusiast looking to do their own home improvements too such as water harvesting and sustainable carpentry."
This will be welcome news to many who wish to get involved with the opportunities that the Green Deal will bring, but are not sure how to proceed in gaining the necessary skills.
