Explore the additional skills and learning required to making our buildings more energy efficient and healthy.

Insulating our existing housing stock requires high quality strategies for ventilation and airtightness.

A whole-house approach therefore raises the stakes for better understanding of specification, design and installation of airtightness products, and ventilation systems.

Our panel of industry experts will discuss how to meet some of the key challenges in airtightness and ventilation in domestic Retrofit. We will also address how to meet the training challenge and how to upskill your workforce with the competencies needed.

This event is an excellent opportunity for existing installers and contractors, other building professionals, as well as those looking for a career change to get their questions answered.

Learn to build a greener future.

In 2021 DWP published the result of the Health is Everyone’s Business consultation. Employers told us they found the amount of information to help them manage employee health and disability was too vast; too fragmented and not navigable.

As a result we have created the SEHD tool on gov.uk. This has been developed with trusted information from across Government and in partnership with Arms Length Bodies (such as the Health and Safety Executive) to improve support for employers on health and disability at work.

Adviza is delighted to be partnering with the Oxfordshire Careers Hub, funded by the Careers & Enterprise Company (CEC) and OxLEP. Careers Hubs bring together schools, colleges, employers and apprenticeship providers in local areas across England. The goal is to make it easier for schools and colleges to improve how they prepare young people for their next steps.

Employers – we need you! At the heart of the project are taster days and a ‘Talent Workshop’ on the 5th March 2024 . The Talent workshop is employer-led and will focus on the soft skills that employers look for, such as being punctual, enthusiastic and willing to learn.  If you can help by having a small group of students attend your workplace or you can support the Talent Workshop, please get in touch with Sandra Reynolds, Head of Delivery, at sandrareynolds@adviza.org.uk.
