We know that it’s tough out there. That’s why The Academy has partnered with industry to support scholarship places on the forthcoming Retrofit Coordinator Diploma taking place in London in May 2017.

Our last two scholarship programmes have been a great success, so we’ve decided to continue with the scholarship programme – because we know that the more trained Retrofit Coordinators there are, the more efficient the industry will be!

For the spring 2017 programme, two lucky applicants will receive fully funded places on the intensive, eight-day, expert-led training programme, which aims to create leaders for complicated domestic refurbishment projects. The Diploma usually costs £2000 plus VAT, but thanks to our sponsors Osmosis, Aereco and Matilda’s Planet, it will be free of charge.

There are also two Half-Scholarships available, with 50% funding for course fees available.

Applications are invited from PhD students, local authorities, housing associations, ALMOs, architectural, surveying and engineering professionals. The successful applicant must have their employers blessing. To apply, please email info@retrofitacademy.org no later than Friday 7th April providing the following:

  • A short personal statement outlining why you would be a worthy recipient of the scholarship (max 500 words)
  • Full contact details and a copy of your CV/professional experience
  • A brief explanation as to why your employer can not pay the course fees
  • Please confirm whether you are applying for the full scholarship only, or the half-scholarship too.

Previous applicants can re-apply for the scholarship simply by contacting us to confirm your preferred location and availability for all of the course dates.

The successful candidate will be notified by 14th April 2017. You must be available to attend ALL the courses on the dates below. Gaining the Retrofit Coordinator Diploma is subject to passing the end of programme examination.
