We are thrilled to announce that on Thursday 30th January, we will be officially launching the exciting Level 3 Junior Energy Management Apprenticeship at The House of Lords in London with our business partner npower Business Solutions. 

Working closely with the Energy Manager’s Association (EMA), who will be the End Point Assessor (EPA), we have combined Group Horizon’s long history of delivering high quality learning with nBS’s expert knowledge of energy and energy management to meet the specified training standards of the Level 3 Junior Energy Management apprenticeship. The launch will be attended by a number of Members of the House of Lords, Members of Parliament, sector experts and representatives from some of the UK’s largest employers.

We truly believe that this apprenticeship not only fits in with the ESFA “Fire it Up” apprenticeship campaign but also with BEIS campaigns promoting good Energy Management and the wider Government commitment to move to “Net Zero” Carbon by 2050. Businesses who put employees through the “JEM” apprenticeship will start to find opportunities very quickly for reducing their energy costs, their energy usage and their carbon emissions, upskilling and retraining their employees and helping the fight on Climate Change. 

This Apprenticeship provides bedrock and foundation knowledge across 11 core topics of Energy Management including Technical; Assessments; Behavioural Change; Regulatory and Legal; Waste Management; Transport; Procurement; Water and many more, all coming together to provide a robust underpinning knowledge. The Apprenticeship can be delivered nationwide and can take up to 24 months to complete. Entrants can come from all types of companies/industries, including hospitality, leisure, retail, banking, manufacturing, construction and property.

On successful completion of this Apprenticeship programme individuals will receive the following;

  • Junior Energy Manager Apprenticeship at Level 3
  • Level 2 Functional Skills, English (If required)
  • Level 2 Functional Skills, Maths (If required) and
  • Membership of the Energy Managers Association (EMA) or Technical Membership status of the Energy Institute (TMEI)

Group Horizon originally ran a pilot of the Apprenticeship back in April 2019 but due to demand we have increased the number of Apprentices enrolled to 45 learners, delivered in various areas across the UK. One of our Apprentices Liam Doughty of Gateshead Council, who enrolled onto the pilot in the North East, said “The qualification has provided me with a massive opportunity allowing me to not only progress with my knowledge and skills in the energy industry but help me move forward in my career.” Liam added “All the staff at Group Horizon have been fantastic and have clearly put a lot of work into making the programme happen, from the preparation of the classroom days to the reviews and assessment of the assignments.”.
