New report sets out framework for defining competence in the retrofit sector

The Construction Leadership Council says its report: Roadmap of Skills for Net Zero: Competencies for Domestic Retrofit 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 People & Skills workstream of the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) has released a report which it says sets out a framework for defining competence in the retrofit sector, and supports the huge amount of work happening across industry to enable the delivery of domestic retrofit.

The CLC says the report 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 team say the work presented in the report takes the industry a step forwards by defining competency in retrofit, and meeting the requirements of the new building safety rules.

The CLC says the competence statements can be used to support the development of competence frameworks for specific occupations involved in retrofit work, and 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.

Moving forward, the CLC says the work undertaken to produce this report highlights the value of the Construction Leadership Council’s convening power in drawing together work that is happening across the industry and working towards the common goal of building a competent workforce. Moving forward, the CLC says achieving this goal requires that the competence statements presented in the report are now implemented through both industry ‘pull’ – for example, introducing minimum requirements and standards of competence in procurement – and in education and training ‘push’ – reviewing curriculum and training course content to ensure that these equip candidates with what is needed in industry. The CLC stated: “We encourage 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.”
