     Energy Champions Programme

    Now that the first group of energy champions are well under way, already completing their City and Guilds level 1 in household energy awareness and half way through their STEPS to personal development course it’s time to start thinking about recruitment for group 2. The energy champions programme has been designed to tackle both fuel poverty and employability in the Aberdeenshire area with participants being up-skilled to act as energy champions in their local area. Feedback from group 1 has been great with the participants already completing their City and Guilds level 1 in household energy awareness and half way through their STEPS to personal development course. They are very enthusiastic and eager to start sharing their new found knowledge on energy awareness with people in their local communities who are currently struggling with fuel poverty. Group 2 will commence at the start of February and all I ask is that everybody keep an eye out for potential participants, people who have barriers to employment and are eager to take part in a programme that will see them gain qualifications and work-life experience.

    There are several ways for potential participants to note their interest;
