About SummitSkills

SummitSkills is the standard setting organisation for the building services engineering (BSE) sector.

We act as the voice of the industry through developing and maintaining standards, apprenticeships and qualifications across the sector.

The building services engineering (BSE) sector plays a vital part in UK economy - so it's essential that the sector continues to develop and maintain industry standards, qualifications and apprenticeships.

A key part of SummitSkills' role as a Standard Setting Organisation is to act as the voice of employers of all sizes across the BSE sector on industry standards and changes to qualifications and apprenticeships, keeping up to speed with policy changes and ensuring skills development projects meet the day-to-day needs of businesses on the ground.

By having a BSE-specific approach, the industries within the sector - plumbing, electrotechnical, heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration - can continue to benefit from a more specialised focus on each industry's skills needs.

SummitSkills is dedicated to giving the BSE sector a voice on the ever-changing skills landscape. Each industry within the sector has highly specific and technical needs and so a focused approach to skills development is essential.
