Hey long time reader first time poster on here. Just wondering what has happened to all the ewi work on council estates and local authority housing that was kicking off last year. Doesn't seem to be any around at the moment and i am desperately looking to get on a job. Based in Manchester myself. If anyone has any information would be really grateful!!

It's all still going on in Middlesbrough. We are getting a day out on site with the lads doing it round our way every Wednesday till the end of June, it's been put through the college for us as a reward/bonus for the lads who get their assesments & exams done early.

I'm doing my first day on site with them on Wednesday. Really looking forward to it.

Good job I haven't got a negative attitude, otherwise I would definitely not be getting any of it then.

It's through the college so no payslip at all. Only 1 way I'm going to find out if it's for me though.

Things are definitely starting to happen on the funded work, I reckon it will kick off shortly and probably go mental again for a year or so.

problem is that it will stop at some point when the funding streams change and then many people will be out of work again. I'm still getting several calls and emails a week from ewi lads all round the country looking for a start.

The Green Deal and Eco funding has been slow getting off the ground but is now starting to ramp up and by January 2014 will be in full swing.
There is a funding pot of 15 billion to be spent over the next 10 years with the majority being spent on EWI so don't worry about any shortage of work it's going to be a shortage of quality labour that's going to be the problem.
The CESP and CERT schemes we have seen over the last 4 years are only minuscule compared to Green Deal and Eco so be prepared to witness an explosion in the industry very soon!
