Group Horizon are thrilled to announce they have been awarded Platinum Approved Provider Status from the Energy and Efficiency Independent Assessment Service (EEIAS).
The EEIAS has been established in response to Government reforms which place employers at the heart of workforce development. Their aim is to ensure that assessments and qualifications are delivered to the greatest of standards and that training is effective and relevant to the jobs market.
Platinum status is the highest accolade which can be awarded and Group Horizon have been commended for their clear vision and smart objectives. Highlighted by the EEIAS is Group Horizon’s commitment to providing exceptional training which in turn promotes high quality learning, flexible to the employers and learners needs.
The energy and utility sector is growing in the UK. However the demand for trained workers has highlighted a skills gap which as it stands is only set to grow. Over the next ten years £100 billion will be invested into the infrastructure of this sector, creating a rising demand for competent workers. Group Horizon are working with employers nationwide to understand the skills shortages of today and tomorrow and to address the training needs required. Urgent priorities are seen in areas such as Smart Meter Installation in which Group Horizon have created an innovative suite of training programmes suitable for everyone from new entrants to experienced meter installers.
Receiving such a respected status from the EEIAS is an amazing achievement and Group Horizon continue to work to ensure high standards of quality and training are at the forefront of everything they do.
