The Energy Garden Youth Training Programme is a paid scheme covering aspects of horticulture, sustainable energy, social enterprise and community development.
The programme is offered to young people (18-24 years old). The programme is carried out in parallel to the development of gardens and community energy projects in the local area, and includes presentations from industry specialists and knowledge sharing. The course runs for a total of 40 hours, giving participants insight and experience into the world of low carbon and green economy through: solar panel making, visits to renewable technology sites, discussions with industry figures, community engagement and surveying, social media and brand building, co-operative business models and marketing.
There is a large focus on energy efficiency and environmental awareness which supplements the school syllabus by looking at climate change and ideas around energy saving in the home. The training serves as one of the front lines to inspire and influence action at the home and beyond to combat fuel poverty, a major concern in these communities. Upon completion, trainees are awarded AQA certificates and receive careers advice to boost their employability and confidence. Programme details:
