Building capacity through training

Our training gives others the skills and knowledge to improve their energy management and progress their own projects

Training

We offer bespoke courses in various aspects of sustainable energy, tailored to suit the needs of a range of audiences

This includes local authorities, community groups, the planning community, employers, energy advice providers, housing associations & tenants and the energy industry. Click on these links to find out what kind of training we have done for this client group.

Our training is often provided as part of a package of services, including technical consultancy, advice and policy work, but can equally be offered as a ‘stand-alone’ option. The content, level and duration of the course is all up to the client. We will work with you to design a training programme that fits your needs and your budget.

Over the past five years we have designed, developed and delivered training courses for, and on behalf of:
Green Communities  |  Energy Saving Trust advice centres  |  DECC  |  InSTEP  |  npower  |  Bath & North East Somerset Council  |  University of Bath  |  Bath Spa University  |  Bath & North East Somerset PCT  |  Energy Saving Trust Scotland  |  National Trust  |  Energy Saving Trust Wales  |  London Energy Partnership  |  Somer Housing  |  Planning Advisory Service  |  Wates Construction  |  Cleveland Fire Brigade  |  Bristol City Council  | Planning Inspectorate  |  Somerset County Council


If you are an individual seeking energy training for personal or professional reasons, CSE delivers a limited number of open access courses in partnership with other providers. These currently include the NEA City & Guilds qualification in energy awareness and ‘Improving your home to reduce your energy use’ for tenants and community volunteers at Trafford Hall. Please contact NEA and Trafford Hall directly to book a place.

And if it is materials rather than courses that you are interested in, why not check out some of CSE's downloadable materials. Our energy advice leaflets are a good place to start, but see also our resources section and the downloads section of our PlanLoCaL website.
