Impact Academy is the first national training provider to deliver the Junior Energy Manager level 3 apprenticeship. We work with some of the UK’s leading organisations and local governments to enable them to meet their commitments to the Governments 2030 and 2050 sustainability agenda, we strive to provide training to develop talent for a greener future.
Energy is the Core of our business, however we do offer other apprenticeships and deliver them with a real Green ethos included in all apprenticeships.
Impact Academy can help businesses to gain further clarity on energy, sustainability and our carbon footprint by offering a free One day course to employees to raise awareness of daily routines that can make a real impact upon the future of our planet.
Our office is based in Warrington but we deliver courses to our Learners across England. The main Apprenticeship which we deliver is the Junior Energy Manager Apprenticeship. Supporting our courses, we have been very particular when selecting tutors to ensure that our Learners’ have the best training experience, built with Energy knowledge.
We welcome training to a diverse mix of individuals, these range from school leavers, new into the job world, to long-term employees wanting to develop.
Whilst being the most cost effective way to broaden organisations, Apprentices will bring fresh ideas and enthusiasm to the company with their new ability to learn a new programme. So we hope to continue to build relationships with organisations across England to improve their business and work together to essentially develop their Employees and our Learners in this niche job sector.
