Green light for business

A training centre has opened to help tradespeople go green.

The Stevenage venue, run by skills company Group Horizon, offers training for electricians, plumbers and roofers among others to become accredited installers of renewable technologies.

Group Horizon Director Peter Behan said: “We think Stevenage is a great venue, both in terms of location, accessibility and number of tradespeople relevant to the programmes on offer.

“Our courses have proved to be in high demand and we have seen our learners go on to set up new businesses in the renewable energy trade or help their current employers adapt their offering to remain competitive and current.”

Businesses and individuals interested in finding out more about the programmes on offer or wanting career and industry advice should email or call 0800 002 9805.
