Find your local installer

The Independent Network Academy

Independent Network Academy Installer and Surveyor Qualifications in association with The Vocational College. 

Independent Network members regularly report how difficult it is to find suitable installers to do work for them. This is a reflection of a wider skills shortage in the construction and building industry.

While there are no ‘silver bullets’ or quick fixes, there is a now a solution; the Independent Network Academy.

Independent Network has teamed up with The Vocational College (TVC) to secure funding that allows members to start addressing this skills shortage.

This process, initially at no cost to the member company, starts with traineeships to identify suitable learners who, after a period of assessment can then progress onto an apprenticeship programme where learners end up with an appropriate NVQ.

You may have a suitable trainee or trainees in mind but if you do not, The Vocational College can help by advertising any vacancy in your organisation in appropriate media including the National Apprentice Service (NAS).
