Energy Ambassadors course 21

Energy efficiency - home

Become an Energy Ambassador for your community group or organisation & be equipped to support others to reduce & manage their energy costs

About this event

Are you involved in your local community or do you work for a voluntary or public sector organisation?

Build your skills and knowledge by joining us for our virtual energy training course. Run over 3 sessions (1.5 hours per week), this fun and informative course aims to raise awareness of ways to save energy and how you can support others to reduce costs. This information is never more important than this winter in light of the unprecedented situation around energy prices and recent loss of the Universal Credit uplift. All content is updated for every course to reflect ongoing changes in the world of energy.

What will you learn?

  • Fuel poverty and local statistics
  • Understanding energy use in the home
  • Energy efficiency and energy saving tips
  • The current situation around energy prices, energy suppliers and how to manage energy bills
  • Support schemes for vulnerable groups
  • Becoming part of a network of Community Energy Ambassadors
  • Unfortunately we can’t provide you with tea and biscuits but we can provide a face-to-face virtual meeting space via Zoom where you can interact with us and others!

Thursday 3rd February, 10-11.30am

Due to the demand we will be running this course for the 21st time since lockdown number 1 last year and we have received some excellent feedback:

“Excellent course. As well as actually enjoying it, I really felt I learnt a lot of relevant information which will help our clients and also my own knowledge/experience. Kate and Chris have to be congratulated on being so up to date in a very changing/challenging period. Brilliant.”

“One of the best courses, informative, interesting and useful. Trainers who delivered made the course enjoyable. Great team.”

“Zoom was used very effectively in this course due to the presentation approach and skills of host and co host; also the format – not too long, not too much information, plenty of time to discuss and answer questions, best zoom course so far!”

“Just a big thank you to you and Chris (for the entertainment value!) for providing such an interesting, useful and helpful course. Well worth attending”

“Thank you for the course, I have taken part in a lot of seminars and other online training over the last few months and I have to say I enjoyed yours the most. The material was specific to the topic and will be very useful in my day to day contacts with our members. Also it was nice to have relaxed chat all the way through and to have some fun. Other training I have done has not had this and it really makes a big difference. When we used to do training in person (remember that??) there was always chat over coffee and in breaks and it is an important part of the training”.

“Great course, lots of fun whilst still being informative – I will certainly encourage others to take part in any courses in the future!”
