Electric and Hybrid vehicles are ushering in a new era of clean, environmentally-friendly transportation. By using lithium-ion batteries instead of combustion engines powered by fossil fuels, these vehicles reduce the amount of pollution and toxins released into our atmosphere  and are an important step on our journey towards NetZero.


The purpose of this programme is to introduce and navigate the new ecosystem of technologies and challenges that cover Electric Vehicles (EV) and EV Charge points. 

Our programme dives into the effects of Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) on our planet. We introduce different electric vehicle types, their working mechanisms and battery range – along with EV connectors/charge points for both domestic and commercial settings - all while taking necessary safety measures to ensure regulatory compliance.


This has been developed to support the race to NetZero and as an important step in an organisation or individuals sustainability journey.

This programme is designed to be delivered as a stand-alone programme (e.g. For adults via AEB funding), or to run along-side other programmes of learning as part of a study programme. It is ideal to combine with out ther programmes to create a espoke 'Green Skills / Renewables' programme. 

  • A single unit of 20 GLH - available on-line

  • Suitable for all learners 

  • Assessment is by an on-line multiple-choice quiz

Learners who complete the programme are awarded a digital credential from City & Guilds, which states: This individual understands the design, differences and usage of Electric Vehicle (EV) Charge Points
