The Energy Efficiency in the Home course is open to groups or individuals and aimed at beginners and the only entry requirements are that you must be at least 19 years old and have been resident in the UK/EU for three years.

It’s a chance to gain new insights that could save money on energy bills, and consists of a short one-day course of up to six hours with refreshment breaks.

The course can also be completed in two or three split sessions for those who are only available for short limited time periods.

Those successfully completing the course will receive a Certificate of Achievement along with a free energy efficiency goody bag.

The sessions will also incorporate the Power Company Switching presentation which raises awareness of the different fuel tariffs and various suppliers’ charges and looks at different ways to either change to a more economical tariff or to a different supplier.

The training sessions can be arranged in various Middlesbrough locations.

MEC Warmer Homes Project Officer Dennis Reeves said: “Household budgets remain under considerable pressure, so managing energy bills and being more efficient can make a big difference.

“The sessions are completely free and are a great chance to find out how to keep warm and save money at the same time.”

  • Anyone who would like to attend a session – including frontline staff as part of their employment – is asked to contact  Middlesbrough Environment City on 01642 243183 or email
