The Low Carbon Skills Grant was funded by the Scottish Government from 2020-2021 to help equip businesses with the skills required to install heat pumps. Courses were available through a number of colleges across Scotland.
Graeme found out about the grant via SNIPEF and describes the process of gaining the funding as ‘effortless’. The grant covered 100% of both Iain and Graeme’s training fees while on the course at Glasgow Clyde College. Training can often cause headaches for businesses as they need to ensure employees have enough time to attend college while managing their normal work activities.
In total the course took the apprentices four days to complete.
