Housing Association Gets More Young People Into Apprenticeships

Yorkshire Housing and Interserve Learning & Employment have partnered to offer the social housing association’s customers with the opportunity to partake in traineeships.

Traineeships usually entail 100 hours of work experience over a four-to-six-week period and are designed to be a precursor to apprenticeships. They give would-be apprentices the opportunity to find what role would best suit them and gain experience which is helpful both during their applications and when they eventually start their apprenticeship.

All traineeship costs are covered by government funding and participants are eligible to apply for an apprenticeship grant of up to £1,200. Following the traineeship, participants are either offered the chance to interview for a position by their traineeship provider or be given an extensive exit interview to offer meaningful feedback.

Community Investment Manager at Yorkshire Housing, James Haigh said: ‘Interserve Learning & Employment do great work and we’re delighted to be working with them. Their tailored approach to finding traineeships for would-be apprentices is fantastic’.

“We’re always looking to cooperate with other organisations to help our customers’ employability, so this opportunity was ideal. We’re also creating a network of northern employability teams through the Northern Housing Employability and Training Forum which is meeting for the first time in May.”

Nathan Garbutt Moore, Partnership & Performance Executive with Interserve Learning & Employment said: “It is very exciting to be working with Yorkshire Housing, a leader in the north, to launch an apprenticeship programme which will create the next generation of the company’s staff.

“Over many months our teams have worked with a true partnership spirit to create a programme that supports Yorkshire Housing’s staff in all aspects of their role”.
