The role of the Retrofit Coordinator is a mandatory requirement for the delivery of all domestic retrofit projects delivered under TrustMark. TrustMark is the recognised Quality Mark for the energy efficiency sector and compliance with TrustMark and PAS 2035 is required by government-funded schemes. The Level 5 Diploma in Retrofit Coordination and Risk Management was therefore introduced to create a role that manages the the PAS2035 process throughout every project. Increasingly the Retrofit Coordinator also plays a key role in non-government funded domestic retrofit projects and allows businesses and individuals to tailor their services to provide works a the highest standards.
Abingdon & Witney College is the registered provider for The Retrofit Academy CIC Oxon & Bucks.

The Retrofit Coordinator plays a pivotal role in delivering the UK’s net zero ambition. Central to PAS 2035 (but not exclusively), the role protects homeowners and clients by managing projects in compliance with the procurement, specification, and delivery of measures in all domestic retrofit projects. Without Retrofit Coordinators, there is no assurance that the high standards required and vast volume of installs will be reached, and the effects of that would be felt globally.
