Construction Leadership Council report defines competence in retrofit sector

The People & Skills workstream of the Construction Leadership Council has released a report that sets out a framework for defining competence in the retrofit sector.

This publication supports the huge amount of work happening across industry to enable the delivery of domestic retrofit and presents a consistent framework of the core overarching knowledge, skills and behaviours required to deliver effective retrofit of homes at scale, both in retrofit-specific roles and associated roles in industry.

The work presented in this report takes the industry a step forwards by defining competency in retrofit, and meeting the requirements of the new building safety rules. The competence statements can be used to support the development of competence frameworks for specific occupations involved in retrofit work. They also support the development of training and education that equips the workforce for the future, both in training new entrants and upskilling the existing workforce.

CLC encourages all stakeholders involved in the retrofit sector to review the recommendations made in the report for embedding competence and to take action to deliver the changes needed.
