Electrician training courses could boost green home scheme

Workers who have taken an electrical or green energy training course could find that they are in need to help implement a new eco home scheme outlined yesterday (February 8th) by housing minister John Healey.

The minister has backed the provision of £60 million in funding to go towards the construction of the first wave of green houses on the eco-town sites of St Austell, Whitehill-Bordon, Rackheath and North West Bicester.

Some 600 homes will be built at first, with over 9,000 more to follow before 2016, he explained.

He added that the projects will give local tradespersons a boost.

"Local workers, including apprentices, will help build these pioneering homes and other projects. This will arm them with the new skills in green construction, giving them a head start on their career paths," he said.

The Town and Country Planning Association recently welcomed the announcement, labelling it an important step towards achieving the eco-home programme's ambitions.
