Sustainable Home Heating Centre
We're creating a dedicated centre at our Maidstone Campus to accelerate our capacity to deliver new courses focused on the installation and maintenance of green technologies for housing including:
- Ground and Air Source Heat Pumps
- Retrofitting of gas boilers to hybrid/hydrogen fuel
- Retrofitting home insulation
- Grey water treatment.
The centre will be fully-equipped with immersive training rigs to enhance learning and development of skills using the above technologies.
We're aiming to help local employers equip staff with the knowledge and recognised environmental accreditations required to accelerate decarbonisation and meet both current and future skills needs in what will remain a key function in the construction of sustainable housing.
