We provide training and access to resources that grow key skills
BE-ST helps the sector access and grow new skills needed for a zero-carbon built environment.
Our Low Carbon Learning Programme, supported through the National Transition Training Fund, delivers practical training in Passivhaus, retrofit, carbon accounting, mass timber systems, and sustainable insultation.
These are available in a wide range of blended learning from online webinars, accredited courses, interactive immersive learning and practical training on Passivhaus and retrofit training rigs. The practical training is delivered at BE-ST’s innovation campus using mobile Passivhaus training rigs and interactive teaching packs.
