Sustainable Building Training Guide Launched

Produced by the Green Construction Board and the Construction Leadership Council this new guide has bee endorsed by leading construction businesses and industry federations, training bodies, and professional institutions.

This accessible guide explains the principles of sustainable building in terms that are useful for the development of content for standards, qualifications, apprenticeships and training courses. Its purpose is to help the training sector to embed sustainability within all mainstream learning, including the national curriculum, apprenticeships, degrees and professional qualifications. It is therefore a key reference for anyone involved in construction training.

The publication, use, and uptake of this guide is a key recommendation of the “Each Home Counts” Review. Its adoption and use by the training sector will help us to address the so-called ‘performance gap’ and will ultimately aid the transition to an energy efficient and low carbon built environment.
