The Green Homes Grant Voucher Scheme required installers to be certified to PAS 2030 standards and registered with TrustMark to ensure that only competent and skilled workers were able to install measures on the scheme. According to the data held by TrustMark, the number of registered installers eligible to participate on the Green Homes Grant Voucher Scheme increased from around 455 when the scheme was first announced in summer 2020 to around 1496 by May 2021. The Government also invested £6m on skills through the Green Homes Grant Skills Training Competition which delivered almost 7000 training opportunities for the retrofit, energy efficiency and low carbon heating supply chain.
